I less and less believe that writing can be taught. Academic adventures seem to impose form and dilute character. Characters are the foundation of any fiction - we tell their stories. Give me three days with any aspiring author and I can indeed improve their writing abilities. But I do wonder if they are not better served by finding and correcting their mistakes by themselves. That said, I would think that these free eBooks can at least not harm.
