You don’t have to spend thousands of $$$ just to learn about writing. If you are reading this, I am sure you have internet access (and PC or laptop) and therefore, make use of the internet to learn everything you need to know about writing.
You can learn about grammar and everything else you need to know as a writer by signing up for free writing courses.
I still remember how I struggled to learn grammar in school since English is a second language for me. However, thank God I managed to pass with flying colours in English exam. Otherwise I would be having a hard time being as a freelance writer now.
