Ayden Dugmore - Applied Writing

“The course has made me fall back in love with reading. I used to love reading as a kid then I got into movies and it fell away. I wasn’t interested in English or writing at school.”

“I’ve been working full time with videos, have a passion for movies and video games and was curious about writing scripts for movies. I also have an eight year old and was ready to better myself. The fact that this course is 100% online with full tutor support made study possible for me.”

“This course is letting my imagination run wild again and opening up new horizons. I knew I could do it but I haven’t studied for years so I’m surprised that it’s coming back quite naturally. Because I work a long day and do the study from home, I have to make sure I prioritize it and watch my time management. Deadlines are a good discipline.”

“The course itself is also helping me structure my ideas. When I started I thought I’d feel isolated but we read our classmates’ work online and get encouraged by the tutors. I like that it’s not a traditional school but still has some of the components of a traditional school.”

“Completing the writing assignments is giving me a sense of accomplishment and I realize that bettering myself is more important than the certificate. When I started I thought my ultimate goal was to write movie scripts but studying short stories and novels is broadening the possibilities. Instead of having a definite plan from here, I’m happy to see where the study takes me.”
