Writing Course

Welcome to my online writing course.

I teach an introductory course to writing fiction in Kigali, which I've just adapted online.

What does the course cover?

The course is suitable for complete beginners and experienced writers who want to improve their style. It covers:

  • The history of fiction
  • Character perspective
  • Character development
  • Descriptive
  • Dialogue
  • Plot
  • Editing

Each unit builds towards a final short story of around 1,000 words which receives detailed feedback. 

What do I need?

You will need access to the internet, and an internet connection fast enough to stream video and download files. You will also need to be able to view PowerPoint with embedded audio. This shouldn't be a problem for Windows machines, but if you're using a Mac, you may need Flip4Mac.

How long does it take?

The time frame is fairly flexible - you can work at your own pace. However, the exercises do carry suggested deadlines to move you forward week by week. You should comfortably be able to complete it within eight to ten weeks.

How much does it cost?

Outside of Africa: GBP 180

Within Africa: (Rwandan Francs) FRW 50,000 (around USD 60)

If you are a student or unemployed, please get in contact to discuss rates.

How does payment work?

I accept bank transfer, Airtel Money, Western Union, World Remit or PayPal.
