Now about the course. It's free folks, that's right, free. You get feedback from other authors, and one review from your mentor. (You can sign up for Mentor reviews on all your pieces, but there is a price.)
The first lesson was so different in it's approach that I was truly shocked. It was a wonderful character development exercise and most of the feedback was really helpful. The writing community that walk the halls of F2K are truly unique to any other writing community I've found online.
Okay, so maybe you don't get a professional to grade your work, but you get what you pay for. And in this little writer's humble opinion, F2K is doing a great deed by being free to writer's such as myself.
