Fiction Writing Masterclass

Hello, writers, and welcome to the new class/lecture that I have planned for July 2020.

If you want to skip the details and register right away, please scroll down to the end of this post.

After having conducted Introduction To The Basics Of Creative Writing and Introduction To Novel Writing webinars of 2 hours each, I realised that the attendees needed more knowledge of techniques in order to be able to start their novels on the right foot and end them within a specific time (plus-minus a couple of months.) Therefore, I cut down right to the centre fo the heart and came up with a specifically designed class for writing a fiction story from start to end.

I am a published writer, a professional literary critic and editor. Writing is like breathing to me, only more important. And it gives me tremendous pleasure and a sense of satisfaction to be able to pass on the knowledge I have acquired and garnered in the last 7 years of my writing career. I am a self-taught writer and I have worked very hard to be where I am today and thus, I take writing very seriously.

As a tutor, I’d prefer teaching 2 students who are equally serious about writing rather than have 100’s of wannabe writers who are not willing to put in the time or the effort in learning their craft. Therefore, this class would be a paid class. When I do free webinars, many people flock to watch them, but because of the hard work I have put in to prepare this Masterclass and its materials, therefore, for this particular Masterclass, I am interested in only the serious participants. It doesn’t mean that you have to be good at writing, no. It simply means that you should be serious about learning to write.

So here I present the Masterclass that will cover everything a writer needs to know in order to start and finish a fiction full-length novel.

What is so special about this Masterclass?

  • It covers topics that other “writing classes or specialists” never talk about. Mostly, in my opinion, because they don’t write that much themselves
  • It is cheaper than any other writing class in the industry especially considering the variety of the topics and the scope of the class
  • Interactive lecture, where you can ask questions right after we finish discussing a topic
  • Lifelong support. Reach out to the instructor, me, at any time through my social media platforms and I’ll be happy to answer your query
  • Special discounts if you later decide to avail any of my writing services – manuscript critique, editing or proofreading. Or any of the publishing packages with Citrus Publishers
  • Certificate of completion from Citrus Publishers
  • Complete course notes along with assignments and exercises
  • Free evaluation of the assignments after the class for up to a month

What will be taught in this Writing Masterclass?

In one sentence: How to write your fiction story from start to finish.

And to break it down, the following will be covered in this class:

  • How to brainstorm and finalise the idea for your novel
  • How to identify and build the theme of your story
  • How to write the first full draft of your book
  • How to not fall in the trap of editing while working on your first draft
  • How to plot your novel according to your story’s genre
  • How to execute the elements of style in your narration and make it stand out
  • How to begin and end the scenes in your novel
  • How to breakdown your novel into chapters
  • How to create realistic and complex characters that readers can relate to and connect with
  • How to write captivating dialogues and the techniques related to them
  • How to deal with the problematic middle 75% of your story
  • How to build the pacing and tension according to the genre and theme of your novel to keep the readers hooked throughout your story
  • How to Identify the plot-holes and work on them
  • Tackling one of the most notorious and infamous topics in the history of writing – Show Vs Tell
  • Understanding the difference between the “climax” and the “ending”
