PREVIOUS CLASSES

Fiction writing 101

Location: Women's institute

All writers, experienced or otherwise, are intimidated by starting a novel. Where to start? How to edit? What's the simplest way to create structure? In this one day class, we will get a quick cheat-sheet on the novel writing process, including time-lines, editing, and querying agents.

Corporate Writing

Location: WeWork/PariSoma

All businesses have stories - how they were formed, why they were formed, what problem do they solve and for whom. Having this narrative built out, goes a long way in telling the corporate story. In this class, we will build out the materials and messages suited for corporate story-telling greared towards early stage start-ups.
