The Advanced Class

Whether you write professionally, for personal pleasure, or you’re a published author already, the Advanced Writing Class will help elevate your writing game, your confidence, and your chances of success.

Establish a high-stakes drama for your next best novel yet. With this class, you’ll gain absolute control of your story to outline your plot. We’ll takes an insider’s look under the bonnet of Pulitzer and Booker Prize-winning novels to consider how to bring the best storytelling techniques to adult fiction to find the sweet spot of acclaim and bestseller status.

Classes

The Ninety Day Novel

Take a fresh approach to writing a novel and get a first draft done. When you discover how easy it is to really write a novel, you’ll only wish you’d started sooner.

Whether you’re a complete beginner or an experienced writer, you’ll find the course a breath of fresh air, offering the chance to learn the methods of famous authors to fast-track your writing.

Our Story First Method® means your storyline will have everything a prospective publisher or literary agent looks for in a novel before you start writing. With a lesson a day to guide you, and personal coaching, you’ll set up a great story, power through the middle, and raise the stakes toward a satisfying ending.

Classes

The Big Edit

Have you completed the first draft of your story? If so, it’s time to congratulate yourself and take a breath. And then? It’s time to edit.

You’ll work one-on-one with professional editors (of bestselling and award-winning books) to review, revise and refine to the highest publishing standards. You’ll learn how to edit your own work and take the all-important big step from being a writer to becoming a published author. The skills you’ll learn with our editing course will make you a better writer for life.

What’s more, when your final manuscript is ready, we’ll be delighted to make a plan for submission to the most respected literary agencies worldwide.
