What you'll do

Do you have a story inside of you waiting to come out? Maybe you have a character formed in your mind, or the premise of an intriguing tale, but you're not sure how to put it down on paper and turn it into a full book. Or maybe you want to write a book, but you don't know where to start.

All stories have a beginning, middle and end, and all stories follow a pattern. Together, we will brainstorm your idea, create dynamic characters that are larger than life, and learn the key components that go into a fully completed novel or screenplay.

This is an online experience, so an internet connection is needed. Other than that you'll just need pen and paper and of course, creativity. Allow for 60-80 minutes.
Other things to note
Class will take place on Zoom with audio and visual components.

As a bestselling author of more than 18 novels, I am excited to share my step-by-step writing process to future storytellers in this insightful and interactive online experience.

Growing up as an avid reader led me to start writing my own stories in 2009, selling my first novel in 2011. Since then, I have sold 17 more books to the writing industry's top publishing houses. Your time with me will put you on the path to your own writing success, whether for your own personal goals or for the market.

A past review from a student: "I learned more from my training with Katy than I have in any other course or book! Full of industry knowledge, craft expertise, and thoughtful insight, Katy equipped me to put her experience to practice in my own work. Fun and approachable, Katy's methods leave you inspired, educated and equipped to write!"

I really enjoyed this workshop. Katy helped me to structure my narrative. It was a lot of fun to jam ideas together. I’ll definitely join more of her classes.

Wonderful experience halfway across the world. Really great to have Katy share so much about her tips on writing and encourage us to write in a way that is creative and also effective. Very kind of her to answer all my questions even when we started a bit earlier and then ended a bit later! Great value :) highly recommend.

My wife surprised me with this experience. I honestly didn't know how this would directly benefit my desire to improve my writing. I was so very pleasantly surprised at how she took my ideas and understating and enlightened me on the structure of writing a novel and related it to proven techniques

Katy was extremely personable and knowledgeable about the writing process. She gave me some great tools to use to organize my writing, as well as some prompts to help me start writing. I hope to take the class again.
