We covered the basics of fiction writing in our course ‘Learn to Write A Story’. This new class will focus on taking your work to the next level.

We will be focusing on four major aspects of good storytelling which is plot, character, dialogue and setting in addition to other aspects.

The highlight of this class will be workshopping your stories.

  • Why is workshopping helpful?

You will benefit from the insights of multiple writers who are avid readers. You will be workshopping other participants’ works too. Each sentence of your work will be dissected and analysed to make it stand out. It will keep you engaged in a supportive and hardworking community. It doesn’t end with the class, we will keep in touch and you will find a beta reader for the future as well!

Some of the questions we will be addressing in the class are:

  • How do you create a strong character profile that a reader can’t resist?
  • How do you make your character grow in your narrative?
  • How do you do justice to your secondary characters as well?
  • How do you write dialogues that are authentic?
  • How do dialogues add value to your story?
  • How do you create an engaging plot that will keep the reader hooked to your story?
  • How to set your story in a ‘place’ that the reader can visit just through your story?
  • How do you choose the right words to create a certain mood for your story?
