    Our newest addition to the E-Library boasts a "wide range" of instructor-led courses. After a closer look at the courses ed2go offers on the topic of 'Creative Writing' I'm thinking they should change the description to "full range". If you're looking for ways to improve your writing, no matter what form at what level, ed2go is a jackpot bonanza of opportunity. From ESL learners to advanced fiction, from beginners' workshops to E-Book marketing, it's all here. The courses run for six weeks, new sessions start up every month, and enrollment is easy.

    Among so many courses here are a few at the top of my list, all of which cover topics we get asked about at library information desks on a daily basis...
