  • Janine Coetzee
    Janine Coetzee South Africa 38% into the course and I can feel my brain has been exercised. What I'm finding really fantastic is that I'm being forced out of my writing comfort zone and challenged to tackle genres I normally don't touch, such as sci-fi. It's very useful to be reminded of aspects like triggers and audience. I'm really enjoying this course. 2016-09-27 18:09:44
