If you’re looking to gain some core skills for writing, including brainstorming, plotting, the structure of scenes, and revising for effect, I have just the thing!

I’m running a class on LitReactor and it starts in two days!

The class runs for 4 weeks, and you can do it at your own pace. You’ll learn from a weekly lecture, by completing assignments, by having your assignment graded, and also by critiquing the work of your fellow students.

Curious to learn more? The description of the class is below. You can read more and sign up for the class at the class page. And even if this isn’t for you, please share it with anyone you think might be interested.

Writing a breakout novel requires mastery of many key skills.

In this four-week workshop, Bradley P. Beaulieu dives into some of the most important: the initial concept, brainstorming, plot development, crating scenes for maximum benefit, and maximizing tension to create the page-turning effect breakout novels are known for.

Special attention will be paid not only to the creative side of writing, but also the industry itself: how books are bought and sold, what agents and publishers are looking for, and how to make yourself stand out from the crowd.

The class is structured so that the content and assignments build on one another, which allows you to leverage what you’ve learned in previous weeks and end up with a stronger sense of how to create strong story ideas and build upon that foundation to create fiction that’s compelling, vibrant, and keeps readers coming back for more.

Each week’s lecture is presented in both essay form and via YouTube video, so that students can absorb the maximum amount of content for each week’s lecture. The content is presented in such a way that any writer can benefit, regardless of genre, but there is special attention paid to science fiction and fantasy in particular. The workshop will include written assignments, to be critiqued by Bradley and your peers.
