Response from Oyinloye Olusegun :

Simply awesome!This is what I have been looking for.



Response from Ms Terry Ash :

Where is the link to the FREE writing course. I have followed all the links and cannot find it to sign up. You do not offer a "Search" for your web site, which might have enabled anyone to find it.
Please advise to terryash@mtaonline.net


Reply From Les Crause:

We apologize for the confusion. We have moved our full writing course to our online school as an official course, and the free writing course was discontinued until further notice, which is why you could not find the link to sign up. There are several links pointing to our online school at http://www.gbm-academy.com if you need to find out more.

You will however still receive a short introductory course to test if you have any writing skills, and you will automatically receive the lessons each week as soon as you subscribe to this website.

Our websites are always clearly marked, with no hidden pages anywhere, so no search function is necessary to find a page. All pages are only two levels deep, and all sub pages are contained in the left column under the main pages, which are located in the buttons at the top of the page.

We did, however, omit removing the reference to the course from the main page, and we thank you for pointing this out. This will be corrected right away so that there is no confusion for others visiting our site.



Response from Paulette :

When can I get started


Reply From Les Crause:

Once you have subscribed to this website, you will automatically be enrolled in an Introductory Course which will give you some basic lessons and then a writing assignment for you to submit to us.

Once we have received your writing assignment, you will be given an assessment of your writing skills and further direction concerning enrolling in the full course.



Response from unverified :

hi, what is the cost of enrolling in the course?


Reply From Les Crause:

The course is currently part of our partnership program which you can find by clicking the logo in the right column for GBR International. Partners are given free access to all courses in their partner level. The lessons are not yet all complete, as we have been waiting to see how much interest there is in the course first before completing the lessons.

We are considering making this a separate course if we can find sufficient talented people who show a writing capability. If you subscribe you will get the introductory course, and at the end of the third lesson we will advise you on whether you should consider doing the full course.



Response from Jackie :

I have been writing short stories for many years. I want to get these books in print. I would appreciate a spiritual eye on my work. Thanks, I will pray that others see this. Again thanks.



Response from Mayble :
