Youll work closely with a successful bestselling published author to reach your creative writing goals in one to one personal coaching sessions devoted to you and your story available in all time zones. Think of it as a once-in-a-lifetime apprenticeship.

Unlike other creative writing courses, we don’t workshop your novel or offer it up for peer-group critique at first draft, saving you time and setbacks. The development of your story will happen within a relationship of trust and expertise.

Your writing coach will help you put the building blocks of your story in place step by step while you finish your first draft. Then, you’ll work with publishing editors formerly of the world’s major publishing houses to raise your story to publishing standards.
