Open Online Courses in Writing
Writing is the textual representation of thematic concepts and ideas, which is used either to promote goods and services or to generate fictional worlds and stories. College writing programs have many different titles, but they are essentially divided into two categories: technical and creative writing. Technical writing courses detail the process of writing for large pharmaceutical, media, and regulatory agencies while creative writing programs teach the fundamentals of fictional and nonfictional writing, including plays, short stories, screenplays, novels, and biographies. An online writing course that specializes in fiction will also outline the editing and dramaturgy processes so students understand the function of constructive creative critique.
