    “The freelancer insisted that I on increasing the milestone and setting it before she starts working. I did not notice, but after we agreed on a duration and I awarded the job, she accepted a day after we discussed everything. To buy herself additional time to do the work. Vey unprofessional. Interms of competence, the freelance has issues with basic english grammar for example she submitted a paper like with this mistake "The Ford motor company a motor company" The verb "is" missing. This is not a typo as she has done it twice. This is not a mistake a native English speaker would make, let alone a Cambridge graduate. Before hiring her, talk to her in the dialogue box and you will notice that not only she does not reply quickly, but also she does not write full sentences so you would not evaluate her language skills. She wasted my time and money. I missed my deadline. I will never recommend her or hire her again.”

There’s a bridge between talent and refined writing that most writers must cross at some point in their careers. The Online Certificate Program in Creative Writing is that bridge, and its insightful and generous instructors are the guides who instilled in me the faith to make the journey across to the other side. The program is not just a journey of learning the essential fundamentals of Creative writing, but also about honing your skills to complete a polished work.
