Hello! I am a newbie, and this is my first post. I would like to find a writing course to help me with writing a chapter book. Has anyone taken a great course that you can recommend? Thank you.

:welcome Julie. I've taken a couple of writing courses from Institute of Children's literature and grew so much--the first was a magazine course, the second a book course. I also taught the magazine course for a few years. They're under different management now but their course materials are excellent. See: https://www.instituteforwriters.com/about/our-story/institute-of-childrens-literature/

Anastasia Suen also offered courses but I'm not seeing them on her website: https://asuen.com/  Try contacting her.

Best wishes on this writing journey.

Have you tried Jordan Hartt's online course?  Based in Port Townsend as he usually coordinates the Summer Writers' Conference.
