The Famous Writers School was an educational institution that ran a correspondence course for writers in the 1960s and 1970s. It was founded in 1961 by Bennett Cerf, Gordon Carroll, and Albert Dorne. The school was successful, but became controversial by 1970 when students had difficulties backing out of their contracts, and it was revealed that not all submitted manuscripts were actually read by a famous writer. Here you can have the entire course without a contract to buy more! All kidding aside, these books are chock full of essential instruction on how to become a great writer.
