Description

Is There a Story In You Just Waiting To Get Out?

I believe we all have stories to tell, and if you have one but don't know how to get started with writing it, then this workshop is just for you.

In this 4 week workshop, I'll show you exactly how to take your story idea and turn it into an amazing short story, complete with tension, great dialogue, and plot twists. Your satisfaction is guaranteed!

Write Your First Short Story is a no-nonsense, practical, step by step method to help you understand the mechanics, discipline, and creativity of writing a story. Even if you've never written a thing in your life, I'll show you how to do it. I'm so confident my workshop will help you draft your first short story that I'm offering a 100% personal money back guarantee. If you're not completely satisfied by the end of the workshop, I'll give you your money back no questions asked.

Here are some of the things we'll cover:

How to shape a story idea
Create your lead character and supporting cast
Plotting the way the pros do
Surprising the reader
Mastering action, summary and dialogue
Mastering feelings, thought and background
Completing a draft
Editing and the final touches

PLUS you have full access to my private Facebook writers group, story-building templates, and discounts on other writing workshop offerings.

What We'll Do

In-class time is a mix of teaching the above writing strategies and showing real-life examples of how they work. We will also spend time writing and discussing our writing in class so you’ll have a chance to learn as much as we can from each other.

My Role

My role is to coach you through the story-writing process, give you constructive feedback, show you the proven techniques that experienced writers use, and challenge your assumptions. I will help you develop your story idea, characters and plotting so you have a clear roadmap to follow.

Money Back Guarantee

I'm so confident my program will help you draft your first short story that I'm offering a 100% personal money back guarantee. If you're not completely satisfied by the end of the workshop, I'll give you your money back no questions asked.

Class size is limited so sign up today!
