WELCOME TO OUR 8-WEEK
CREATIVE WRITING ONLINE COURSE
A healing balm for fresh writing wounds and old scars or blocks. We know how it feels and we know how to make it fun!
We specialize in warmth and caring, encouragement, fun and safety. And our curriculum is different.
Many creative writing courses teach you the practical craft of writing and educate you on how to navigate the publishing world. We do not profess to be experts in that field. Instead, this course provides a healing balm for your deepest writing fears and even your oldest writer's block—packaged with cheers and fun. You'll effortlessly learn to write creative short stories, lively anecdotes, "Easy Button" outlines, a fun self-interview, quotable quotes . . . all without the blahs of manuscript formatting or the terrors of word count.
WHO IS THIS COURSE DESIGNED FOR?
stalled writer / jaded writer / closet writer
If you haven't written much in ages—or you've never really had the courage to start—we can definitely set you on, or back on, the path to calling yourself a writer. Writers who feel burned out from doing it as a business (or from trying to please the publishing industry) also love our fun online course curriculum.

My life was a shambles. A serious accident effectively ended my 25-year career with horses, and I had to reinvent my life. I turned to Google for help. By what seems now to have been a case of Divine Intervention, I came across Milli Thornton’s "Fear of Writing Online Course" and had a look. The course promised to make writing fun.
I’ve been involved with writing all my life, mostly as an editor, but also as a journalist. I even published a book that got written up in the Far Eastern Economic Review. But I would never have called writing fun. The very idea stuck me as outrageous.
So I called her up. And took her course. It totally changed my life.
All of a sudden, writing was like taking dictation. I could hardly write fast enough to type the words. And it was fun.
The basis of FoW Online Course is feedback. Every assignment I turned in got accurate, uplifting and inspiring feedback. It wasn’t criticism. The course wasn’t about how to write. It was about helping me to allow myself to write. I can’t tell you how important that permission has been to me. I was able to write with fluency and joy. And I loved what I wrote. That was maybe the biggest surprise. I was writing good fiction, which was something I never thought I could do.
By the middle of the FoW course I really felt like a writer, a writer having fun writing good stuff. I have never looked back. Without Milli and her feedback and her brilliantly organized course, it would never have happened.
