Update: Non-Credit Option for McDaniel Romance Writing Courses

This additional path to these courses was created, in part, in answer to a number of inquires from international students who were finding the credentials authentication process lengthy and cumbersome, and who did not really care if they got credit.  They just wanted to take the courses. 

Here's the update:


We've added a non-credit option for the McDaniel College romance writing courses which begin on August 27. 

From the McDaniel website:

Not interested in receiving graduate credit?
A noncredit version of the program is available for those not wishing to pursue graduate credit.  The noncredit version of the program offers students the exact same program, experience and interaction as the credit version of the program.  Download the noncredit registration form.  Please carefully follow the instructions on the form regarding registration and payment for the noncredit option. Noncredit registration forms can be e-mailed to Ms. Penny Pfeiffer at ppfeiffer@mcdaniel.edu or faxed to 410-857-2515 (attn:  Penny Pfeiffer).

To enroll as a non-credit student you do not need a bachelor's degree, and international students interested in the program do not need to undertake the authentication of their credentials required of degree-seeking, for-credit students.  

The courses are online and asynchronous--you can attend class at any time, 24/7, from anyplace in the world that has an internet connection. New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Crusie will be teaching the writing courses. She and I will co-teach the first course, Reading the Romance, a craft-driven analysis of the writing technique in ten novels, designed to sharpen your tools for the work in the writing courses that follow.  

Full information here.

I welcome questions about the registration process or about the courses themselves.
