So. Over the last few weeks (yes, yes, as well as writing and editing and trying to have something resembling a life!) I’ve been tweaking my Flash Fiction Course. And I can now, happily and proudly, reveal that it’s ready to be launched.

Here’s what it is.

It’s a six part course, for all abilities, covering what I feel are the essential parts and tools needed to write great short fiction, including

Generating ideas

converting them into great stories

recycling from your own experiences

description

dialogue

editing

being an efficient story teller

and, obviously, much much more.

There are six assignments which can be completed in your own time.

There’s me. Yes. Me. As well as receiving feedback on each of the assignments, I will be available, pretty much all of the time, to help you through things, to guide, and to answer any questions you might have. That one-to-one aspect is very important to me. It’s a dialogue as well as a bunch of assignments.

You’ll also have access to other optional exercises and, at the end of the course, a free professional edit from me.

Now, I was intending to launch this next year. But, as it’s Christmas (and as I’ve finished it sooner than I’d expected to) I thought I’d be generous.

So, if you sign up before January 1st, it will only cost you £89 (after then it’ll go up to £111). I should say too, that you don’t have to start the course just because you’ve signed up before the new year – when you start it is, pretty much, up to you.

If you’re interested, have any questions, or would like to sign up, please feel free to get in touch via the contact form here.

And, here’s what people who’ve already been on the course have said:

“The course gave me concrete tools for my writing, including ways to generate new ideas and a fantastic approach to editing. Nik’s constructive feedback gave me more confidence in my writing, along with some good clues as to where I need to make improvements.”

“One of the things that really worked for me with this course was the size of the assignments. I didn’t feel over-faced and start worrying that I wouldn’t have the time to get through each one; very important for anyone working full time or maybe with a full time family to run.”

“The immediacy of the feedback was excellent and really helped the me maintain momentum with each piece of work. From a practical perspective, I think the pricing what very reasonable and the delivery mechanism worked well.”

“Excellent value for money and the assignments were the right length for me as I work full time.”

“My only complaint is the course has ended.”

“Nik’s practical approach to editing is something that will prove invaluable to my development as a writer.”

“It also helped me look at my work in an whole new way that I’d never done before.”

What are you waiting for?
