Ideas and Inspiration
Where do ideas come from? We’ll look at how you can take inspiration from a wide range of sources from all around you, and turn them into material for your stories.

Bringing Your Characters to Life
If you’re writing fiction, it’s vital to create believable characters. This module will show you how to do this using exercises to spark ideas and build a character from scratch.

Voice, Viewpoint and Dialogue
Now you’ve created a character, it’s time to think about your writer’s voice, point of view and dialogue. You’ll be looking at what ‘voice’ actually is, how the point of view you choose
affects the story you’re trying to tell, and the importance of writing strong dialogue.

World Building and Settings
Fully-realised settings are important too, whether your story is set in another world or in the
corner shop! You’ll look at ways to create vivid settings, and how to place your characters there.

Pin Your Plot Down
We’ve all heard the saying “every story should have a beginning, middle and end”, but what does that actually mean? We’ll look at the basics of story structure, using existing stories as examples. Finally, we’ll look at tips for redrafting and editing your work.

If you have any further queries, you can check out Frequently Asked Questions or How it Works.
