What to Expect Each Week
Lesson 1: Your Writing Journey
The first lesson picks up from what you know so far. Whether you are previously published or completed one of our beginner courses, it shows you how to write about more complex themes and start getting into the publishing industry.
Lesson 2: Points of View
This lesson shows you how to write a multi-perspective narrative. With more than one compelling character, readers can often engage more deeply with narratives with more than one point of view. This lesson teaches you core techniques such as repetition and juxtaposition.
Lesson 3: Non-Linear Narratives
Not every story moves from A to B directly. Some narratives, like time travel and life writing, have a non-linear style. This lesson shows you how to write a story out of order with expert advice and activities.
Lesson 4: Show, Don’t Tell
Building on the golden rule of storytelling, this lesson shows you how to effectively use symbolism and metaphor in your writing to impact your reader.
Lesson 5: Rewriting
This lesson shows you how to write an adaptation or parody. Whether you are trying to improve a previous story or make your reader laugh, this lesson shows you to reinterpret any genre for maximum effect.
Lesson 6: Flash Fiction
The final lesson teaches you how to write flash fiction. A growing literary form, flash fiction is often complex to write. It is often published, however. This lesson will show you how to edit your work so publishers love it.
