Apple’s iTunesU has many courses available for aspiring writers. These free online courses offer writing advice from dozens of authors and academics. There are hundreds of hours of video and audio lectures, as well as free books and other materials. While there is an emphasis on “classic literature”, if you do a little digging, many of the offerings have some valuable insights. (Note that iOS may be required for some content.)
Here are just a few of the courses I’ve found:
- Writing creatively: fiction by The Open University
- Approaching fiction by The Open University
- Hero and Quest by Missouri State University
- Fiction for Young Adults by La Trobe University
- Start writing fiction – Audio by The Open University
