Whether you're spelling it out by hand or typing it out on your computer: Garland's library system offers online courses to help writers hone their chops.

Have you always dreamed of writing a book? Or maybe writing a few short stories? You could try your hand at writing by taking one of the online creative writing courses offered through Garlands library system.

The Nicholson Memorial Library System, which includes all four of Garlands public library branches, offers eight online creative writing courses focused on making participants better fiction writers.

In a social media post, the library said the courses are available 24/7 through Universal Class, an online learning platform.

Universal Class offers introductory creative writing courses, workshops, a historical fiction class and a mystery writing lesson, among other opportunities for writers, according to its website.

The library promoted the courses to mark National Novel Writing Month, but the coronavirus pandemic has also seen the library system bulk up its online offerings, including story time sessions for youngsters, adult learning classes and other e-activities.

Through the library system, users can also take language lessons, courses designed to prepare participants for citizenship tests and trade-related classes, among others.

With COVID-19 cases spiking again, Garlands libraries have recently reduced their hours and scaled back their capacity. But residents can apply for a temporary, 60-day library card online in the meantime.
