Fiction Writing Basics – 5-Day Online Workshop

Hello dear readers and writers, after some exhausting and mentally strenuous months, I am back with another workshop.

Fiction Writing Basics – 5-Day Workshop

Last year I conducted multiple batches of Fiction Writing Masterclass and Creative Writing workshops and the one thing I noticed in all of the students was that most of them did not know how to write and where to begin. Keeping this in mind, I wanted to start the workshops for this year with the most basic course, spread over 5 days so that the students can get enough time to not only learn, but to understand, implement and discuss each and every topic.

When I say students, I mean all the people who attend my class – right from 15-year old teenagers to 80-year old professors, I teach everyone whoever is interested in learning writing.

I implore you to read through my bio and profile to know exactly why you should learn from me, a self-taught award-winning fiction writer.
