I am a physician/surgeon. I am looking to improve my writing abilities, especially creative writing. Does anyone have a good recommendation for a course I can take? I signed up for “English for career development” and realized right away that it’s too basic and is not what I am interested in! I don’t know how to drop it!!!

Hi @Madhavi Wesleyan University on Coursera offers a specialization in creative writing, four courses and a capstone. I have done the first three for certificate and found them quite good, although I never completed the forth or the capstone class. The first class in the sequence is called The Craft of Plot, if you wish to look it up. To unenroll from a class go to your Coursera landing page and click the three sots in the upper right of the course block and it should give you a dropdown menu that will have the unenroll option on it.

Thank you, Halla, for the recommendation and for the info on how to drop my current course!
I’ll check the Craft of Plot out!
