“The Outliers course helped push my creative nonfiction in new directions. Two of the essays I wrote as course assignments – a flash piece and a lyric essay –  were accepted for publication in Burningwood Literary Journal and Crack the Spine.”
~ Karen Zey, author of “Independent Education Plan“, “Living with Mature Skin”, and “Lessons in Hugs”

“Nicole Breit’s CNF Outliers course is packed with invaluable information for the creative non-fiction writer. Each lesson is presented in a variety of formats, text, graphics, web links, audio files, Q&A with writers and editors, etc. Her feedback is prompt and thorough. The final lesson delves into revision, polishing and publishing. I enjoyed every aspect of this course. Highly recommend it.”
~ Shirley Harshenin, author of “Letters to My Brothers” (published in Room 41.1)

“Before I took this course I had a jumble of stories in my head that I wanted to tell, and no idea how to begin writing them. My confidence was shaky. I was at mid-life, a thousand demands on my time, and worried that my dream of writing was passing me by. I did myself a favour and signed up for this course anyway. I couldn’t be more grateful! It gave me structures to shape my stories. It gave me inspiration. It gave me very healing encouragement and confidence in my voice. It gave me direction for where to go from here so that I can carry on as a writer, not just as an aspiring writer. What a gift! Nicole Breit is just the coach I needed to help me. She’s generous with compliments and unflinching with constructive feedback, a trustworthy editor. Her experience and the perspectives she shares of other writers and editors is invaluable in teaching how to proceed from creation to publication. I can’t recommend the course enough.”
