"As far as my comments to students go, most of what I say is based on 25+ years of experience writing and teaching popular fiction. I have 25 titles in print, some of them best sellers, published when one out of 5000+ unsolicited MSS were accepted from new writers by major publishers like Putnam, Avon, Berkley, NAL, Tor, William Morrow...those were my publishers. The advice I give is...invaluable."
~ John DeChancie
One student said, "I appreciate the personal and insightful comments to my short story which is not in the mainstream genre. The suggestions had both critical and constructive points -- the second or third opinion that every writer needs. But not intimidating as beginning writers might imagine." Another student said,
"Excellent course! The feedback by instructor, John DeChancie was invaluable. I learned a lot from the lecture information that I will continue to apply to my writing."
