    The degree is not essential, Darnell. Some of the world’s best writers had no formal English/writing education. Which doesn’t mean a poor command of language and storytelling! Ray Bradbury, Maya Angelou, and Jack London are just a sample.

      Workshops and programs like Grammarly.com have been a big help to me along with the writing community. Thanks Meg.

      I totally agree with you here. I also believe the degree is not so essential as it might seem. I mean, for example, I don’t have a degree in literature or so but still I have managed to learn how to write an abstract for a thesis. I guess the practice and maybe, a bit of inspiration and talent are way more important.

        Absolutely. And many styles of writing. I think a well read person, an avid reader can be an excellent writer! Thanks, Clara!
