I’m thinking about signing up for an Institute of Children’s Literature writing course to hone my writing skills and help me develop a publishable manuscript.  I’ve received their offers in the mail periodically over the years.  I wondered whether it was a scam, but after researching their web site and online testimonies from satisfied students (paid? who knows) I decided that they’re legitimate and make give them a try.  The Institute is not very forthcoming on their course fee schedule, but I figured out that their basic course costs about $600.00.  In this age of high college tuition costs, that isn’t too expensive.  The fee buys you personal guidance from published authors, which is valuable in and of itself. 
 
At present I’m mulling it over.  If you have any thoughts one whether I should enroll in this course, please let me know right away.
