About This Class

I couldn't resist signing up for the Skillshare-Wattpad joint competition to create a class for writing short stories. I'm passionate about writing and I've learned a lot about writing fiction over the years. Beginner, rookie or old hack, I hope to help you write a short story you'll be proud of and improve your confidence and skill in creative writing.

About My Classes

My mission is to help you feel more confident about your writing. I'm not here to tell you whether your writing is "good" or "bad", but to help you conquer doubt, improve your creativity. 

My longer classes include practical advice and writing tools.

My shorter classes are about getting you to think, peel back the layers, think out of the box, and any other cliché you'd like to add. I want to help you sharpen your focus, strengthen your resolve and ask questions like "Why do they do it like this?", "What made this writer successful?" 

If you have a question you'd like answered in a class, please post it up in a discussion. 

You will only find classes by me on Skillshare. I don't publish to other platforms, so make sure you get your Premium Membership. Ping the @Free_Skillshare twitter account, and keep checking in to Skillshare free classes by all teachers. You'll get the special deal: 3 months for 99c. How's that for a bargain?
