Course description

So — You need to learn how to write better?

You’re not getting the grades you want, or the promotion you want, or the happiness you want.

Sometimes you have writer's block. Other times you know what you want to say, but you don’t know how to say it.

It’s time to change that.

No matter what you are writing — a college essay, your memoirs, your company's annual report, or the next New York Times bestsellerthe Writing Whatever course will change the way you write for the rest of your life.

Here's what you'll learn



— The secrets of the great authors, from Jack London to J. K. Rowling

— How to make your essays super organized

— How to get it right on the first draft, not the fifth

— How to achieve that elusive quality called "flow"


Here's what people say about Writing Whatever

“Why didn’t someone tell me all this years ago? I get it!”

"It was the most important course I took in high school."


"I am an independent writer, benefiting tremendously from your program and its exercises, which give me both skill and confidence."

"I won the Gold Key in the Scholastic Art and Writing for my portfolio. Considering that I came to US just a year before I took your class and that it has only been 4 years I have lived here, I think it's quite astonishing. Writing has become a place where I can just go and let my mind wander."

"Don, I’m very interested and would like to incorporate these techniques into a composition class for college Freshmen."
