Do you have an idea for a story that’s not quite wide enough in scope for a novel?

I’ve created two formats for this class.
This is the deluxe version which includes ten lessons with more content and exercises to help you put your newly acquired skills to use, plus a workbook.

All the classes are downloadable upon payment so you can start learning straight away, no waiting for a class start date or specific time of the day you have to be at your desk. Study whenever and wherever you want, study at your own pace and best thing is these classes and resources are yours to keep forever. No expiration date so if something happens that you can’t study the material straight away, even if it’s a year later, you can come back to them and come back to them time and time again when you want a ‘refresher course’.

(And should you feel you’re not quite ready to commit to either course, I also have the Writing the
Short Story and Novella workbook that you can download for $5.95).
