    I'm looking to take my English writing abilities to the next level. My writing isn't terrible, I was born in Canada and have spoke English my entire life. I'm university educated, but my English marks in high school were garbage because I couldn't structure any of my thoughts. However, I have some introductions at major national publications to become a guest contributor so I really need to work on my writing abilities. Hiring ghost posters are great, but sometime you just can't get the writer to hit the nail on the head. It's not always about the backlink, but sometimes you have other goals. (If you read Ryan Holiday books, you know what I'm talking about) Not just your typical their/there/they're article but rather how to structure news stories, etc. Something hybrid or a crash course.

    Anyone know of any online courses or short resources they can recommend?

    I was thinking about picking up the Associated Press reference guide.
