Short Story Writing Course

What graduates have said about this course:


"Ginny was fantastic. She was quick to assist me and always managed to mark my assignments quickly. She gave me the confidence and knowhow that has been holding me back from writing seriously. My aim with this course was to put into practice all that I have learnt with my studies (I obtained my Honours degree in Theory of English Literature at the beginning of the year) and to get objective feedback on my writing. This course was a great help to me and I would definitely recommend it to any aspiring writer!" Hannah Green, Short Story Writing
 
"I thoroughly enjoyed the course and benefited from the material. Ginny was an outstanding tutor. You guys really do provide an outstanding service to us would-be writers." Varsha Patel, Short Story Writing Course
 
Can’t say enough about my tutor really. Ginny was fantastic! I loved her prompt marking and chatty emails. Right from the word ‘go’ Ginny was more than friendly and very, very encouraging. This made logging on when waiting for the assignment results all the more exciting. Every single one of my aspirations was met. My tutor obviously enjoyed my writing, I loved the discipline of working on the set assignments and also that my imagination was getting a workout. But what is really exciting is that all in the same week I got my course report, and sold a story to a magazine! Stephanie Attwood, Short Story Writing
 
"I have to say this was one of the most enjoyable things that I have ever done. I am so thrilled with my result and found the feedback to be very useful in every regard and I have learned a lot. Can I also just say Ginny was wonderful! She has so knowledgeable and although strict with her assessment, gave very positive feedback." Ina du Toit, Short Story Writing
 
I was very impressed by the service offered at the College.  I was pleasantly surprised that the College was highly efficient and that I received my tutorials immediately.  Ginny Swart is a brilliant tutor and I appreciated receiving her comments with every module.  I have grown as a writer and will continue pursuing my writing dreams. Sumi Singh, Short Story Writing

"Ginny was not just a teacher; she became my friend and confidant during this course and I will miss her dearly." Sana Patel, Short Story Writing
 
"I could not have found a better college. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and Ginny is a marvelous tutor. Couldn't have been better." Gillian Palliser, Short Story Writing Course
 
"It's been an enriching experience and I am definitely a better writer than I was at the start of the course. It's been a pleasure and privilege to have Ginny as my lecturer. She taught me a great deal, and those lessons will continue to be of great value. Thanks." Cornelia Booysen, Short Story Writing Course
 
"I think you are the best distance college for creative writing. The universities couldn't offer me such a course - I tried them. Have so enjoyed your short story writing course. I was about to give up on the last assignment when I received your email which said 'keep going, keep writing, show up at the page.' It was the necessary push that I needed so I did just that. Thanks! The course met my objectives in every way. It was exactly what I wanted." Ann Hoffman, Short Story Writing Course
 
"Ginny is approachable and professional. Her feedback was prompt, honest, encouraging and the guidance she gave me is something I truly appreciate. With her assistance I am more confident, knowledgeable and positive about my future. Thanks Ginny!" Marie Duddle, Short Story Writing
 

"You have a great college offering a wide variety of courses, and after a spell of writing for magazines, I might return to do the novel course or maybe the children's story course. Such delightful anticipation. I wish to thank you and Ginny for looking after me so well." Lesley Maher, Short Story Writing Course
 
“Ginny is an excellent lecturer and was very helpful and extremely quick at getting back to me whenever I submitted an assignment. She also gave me a lot of advice and answered all sorts of questions I had.” Carol Reed, Short Story Writing
 
“Just wanted to say a very big THANK YOU to Ginny Swart who has been a fantastic motivator and mentor since my very first assignment of the course. I'm learning to be cleaner and meaner with words, and it's deeply encouraging receiving her comprehensive feedback. THANKS A MILL GINNY, YOU'RE A STAR!” Widaad Munga, Short Story Writing
 
“Ginny is a wonderful tutor – her feedback is always encouraging and highly motivating and you get this incredible sense of safety – like she’s a caring and nurturing ‘mom’ rather than a tutor and advisor. Thank you, Ginny – for everything!” Karen Jones, Short Story Course
