Guideposts Writing Course – Review

I remember years ago attending a writing conference where one of the attendees had just returned from the Guideposts Writers Workshop. She wasn’t one of the speakers, but everyone swarmed around her, wanting to hear her story, how she got picked to attend, and what she learned while she was there. I was fascinated as she told her simple story about a bird on her porch that she used to share a life truth. That’s what Guideposts is all about – the art of inspirational storytelling. Now, everyone can learn the art thanks to the new Guideposts video writing course.

“How To Tell A Great Story” is a two-hour class designed to teach you how to write your own story. Master storytellers from Guideposts teach you how to make your story compelling and entertaining, following a formula that has worked at Guideposts for over 70 years. You take the course at your own pace and you can repeat the modules as many times as you would like.

Even though the course is geared for magazine writing, it’s really much more. I found the advice and techniques could easily apply to other forms of writing as well as speaking.

The videos are professionally done and remind me of the MasterClass series. They’re brief and to the point, jumping right into the nuggets of information without promotional filler. Each lesson is eight to fifteen minutes and includes a mastery quiz at the end. I thought I’d test my knowledge and see if I could pass the quizzes without first doing the lesson. I couldn’t. But the quizzes made me want to go back and learn the information so I could try again. And the great thing is that the class doesn’t expire, so you can come back to it over and over and refresh your learning.

You can’t beat the price. At $24.99 “How To Tell A Great Story” is a great deal. It even comes with a 30-day Money Back Guarantee.

    1. Kaylynn, I know what you mean. So many courses just aren’t worth the cost, but this one has value. They know what they’re talking about it and they explain it succinctly and easy to understand. I’d love to hear your thoughts after you take it.
