Course Description

Designing a story can sometimes seem overwhelming. We may have an idea of the overarching plot, but now we have to break that into smaller components. Where to begin? How does each scene work on its own, and how do you string them together? This workshop addresses all of this and more.

What People Are Saying

5/5

“Not everyone who can do it, can teach it. I’ve watched hours of masterclasses, tutorials and online lessons on writing and I must say that this course is a breath of fresh air. Barbara is a gifted teacher, the way she explains topics, the exercises and even the work sheet provided make this a truly engaging experience.”

“Barbara is very energetic and passionate about the subject material and did a marvelous job in getting me interested in a type of writing that I normally pay no attention to. (I am normally only interested in fantasy and SciFi settings). The class project also seems like it is going to be a lot of fun (I am doing it after writing this review). I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in writing. I personally got more out of it than you would get in a $1,800 college class on the subject of creative writing.”

I gained so much from this course and I’m ever so grateful to Barbara for the incredible amount of time and effort she has gone through to make such an informative resource available to us!”
