3 Free Courses that Will Help You Become a Better Writer


Everyone wants to learn how to be a better writer. Even if you don't want to write books one day, we all have to write in everyday life with e-mails, business letters, legal issues, and more. Knowing how to write is an invaluable skill. 

If you don't have a lot of money to invest in writing training, you may feel like you have no options to become a better writer. 

Luckily, these three online writing courses are completely free and can help you learn to write better today!

Technical Writing from Open Courseware

Technical writing is something everyone has to do no matter whether you sell houses, fight fires, or are an author. This specific course outlines helpful tips through video lessons on content creation, resume building, e-mails, concise copy, and more.


Introduction to Writing for Children from Falmouth University

This course is completed with two video courses outlining tips for writing for children. Writing for children is a little different than writing for adults, and any writer interested in writing for children should check out this free online writing course.

Take the course:

Write What You Know from the Writing University

The Writing University offers practical and helpful podcasts on a variety of writing techniques. All lessons are useful, but this lesson talking about how you can “write what you know” without limiting yourself is particularly helpful to new and old writers alike.

With a little practice and training, both the most novice of writers and the most veteran writer can improve their skills. Writing, just like many skills, is just something that improves with practice and time!
