Novel & Script Writing Program
The first draft course is a pre-requisite for the other novel and scriptwriting courses. It is a fluid and flexible process where you follow a step-by-step process and complete your first draft in 10 months.
The next step after our First Draft course is the 8-Month Novel & Script Second Draft course. This course provides a step-by-step process that allows you to work through the re-envisioning and re-structuring of your first draft.
By its very nature, you can only go so deep in a first draft. The systematic process of the Second Draft adds more layers, more complexity and greater depth so that your story works dramatically and logically from beginning to end.
Most people totally transform their stories in this course, taking them to a whole new level when they get the action, character arc and theme all working together. You can expect at least a 200 per cent improvement from your first draft with your personal online tutor.
This course is where you start focusing on the writing and learn the art and craft of re-writing and editing. You will see the benefits of doing all the hard work in the First and Second Draft courses. The sounds structure you’ve developed really starts to pay off now as you see your writing come alive on the page, an extremely satisfying and rewarding part of the process.
You will receive feedback on 1500 words every month and learn how to get you writing working on the page so that it engages your readers and has them wanting to know what happens next.
This twelve-month course is where you work with Roland and a professional editor getting your novel or script to a publishable standard.
In the extension course you will receive feedback on 5,000 words every two months, culminating in submitting 20,000 words. Working on the longer pieces, learning new writing tools and receiving more personalised and detailed feedback helps take your story and writing to another level.
