DO I OR DON'T I...That is the question.
I've been pondering about something for quite some time. Perhaps you would be kind enough to give me some input. The Institute of Children's Literature only accepts 32% of it's applicants. I was accepted, but can't decide if it's the right move in these economic times. If you've had experience with them, I would appreciate your input.
If you went through their program:
*Were you published prior to enrolling?
*How many pieces did you publish while taking the course?
*Did you get your money's worth?
*Did you ask for a refund?
*How has going through their program affected your writing?
*Are you closer to your goals because of the training you received or would you have gotten there anyway?
*Who did you work with?
*Would you do it again?
*Would you recommend it to your mother, if she suddenly took up writing?
I welcome all comments, good or bad.
If you get a chance to go to http://www.knowonder.com my story Peep, Peep, Peep is on page 69. If enough people vote for me I could have the honor of being one of the top three stories of the month. (Thanks in advance.)
