Of course, the usual cautions apply. Be wary of scams when signing up for courses you have to pay for.

Libraries often have helpful books on various aspects of writing, as do online bookstores. Some classic books written decades ago are still eagerly read by a new generation of beginning writers. Used copies cost a lot less than new books, and some listed below (and others) can be downloaded to your device.

Local public libraries also have periodicals on writing, some of the articles are very, very good, and it’s all free information. Ask your librarian.
