“The Nature of Writing course is just the course I had been looking to take for quite a while now. It is comprehensive and thorough, easy to navigate, provides quizzes for each section, approachable and all that for a reasonable price. I am an English tutor and knew that I needed to refresh and even update my knowledge of grammar and writing. I would encourage any high school or university student and/or English or ESL teacher to take this course. It is self-paced and you can easily pick up where you left off at any time. I highly recommend this quality course.”

"The Nature of Writing website provided a concise, well-organized reference for me as an instructor. In particular, the gentle confidence of the video presentation on diverging from the 5-paragraph essay transformed my students’ approaches to university writing."
