Courses
Writing courses can often give you a sound foundation from
which to build your writing. As there are so many types of writing,
I have focused on specific topics and levels for each.

Though many companies offer two and three day turnaround for
a response, I feel that quality feedback takes time.I expect that
much of your writing will take deliberation and thought. This is
how I approach my feedback as well.

Quality is my aim.

Life stories: adding to the tapestry

We all have stories, and they are all important. Without them, we
have a gap in the fabric of our history and culture. Each
experience, each story, is another colour or texture that adds to
the tapestry.

In this new wave of fascination with our ancestry, we are being
connected to more and more names, nationalities and cultures.
The names and dates are important, but they leave large,
echoing gaps. This course is designed to help you to fill these
gaps with three-dimensional memories that can be passed down
for generations.

‘But what if I can’t remember?’

That’s what this course is all about. It asks questions, offers
triggers and suggests exercises that will help you remember
moments you thought you’d lost. If you want to include photos
and letters, I can also help with layout and printing.

The course also includes:

  • building a foundation

  • collecting your memories

  • tangible triggers

  • personal prompts

  • uncovering a theme

  • parts of a story

  • making them shine.

Your stories are waiting to be written, and who is better equipped
than you to write about your life? You have the experience,
knowledge and memories that make you perfect for the job.

Fiction for kids

Contrary to popular belief, writing for children is not easier than
writing for adults. A children’s story must have the same
elements as a story for adults – three-dimensional characters,
setting, plot, theme, conflict – but you have fewer words to make
this happen. Writing for children requires a different, but
overlapping, set of skills. Kids are tough customers, but also a lot
of fun. They ask questions and demand to be respected. They
keep you on your toes and help you to see worlds where there
are none. They expect and deserve only the best.

Once I have put the finishing touches on
Fiction for Kids, it will
include the following.

  • Through the eyes of a child

  • Live like a writer

  • Finding ideas

  • Picture books

  • The essentials of a children’s story

  • Character development

  • Dialogue

  • Viewpoint

  • Tense

  • Show, don’t tell

  • Pace

  • Self-editing
