“Over the years, I've tried to write by myself and never made any kind of progress. I was frustrated and about to give up on my novel when I found this course—and I'm so glad I did. I learned more from working with Savannah than I have from years of my own research—and I finally finished an entire draft of my novel!”

—Amanda Norris

  • How to uncover the theme of your story
  • How to develop a three-dimensional protagonist with a compelling goal
  • How to craft conflict with high stakes
  • How to build a plot that hooks interest
  • And so much more...
real writers, real results

“This course helped me turn my idea into a complete draft! I usually don’t plan my story before writing, so I was hesitant to sign up knowing there was a whole module on outlining. But, I have to say, after taking this course, I've totally changed my mind. This course showed me that planning doesn’t have to be super structured—it can actually be inspiring and fun!”

  • Master the art of writing solid scenes
  • Gain the clarity and confidence to finish your draft

“I had a TON of ideas for a story but no idea what to do with them. I write fantasy so I usually get consumed in world-building or creating cool magic systems, but all that doesn't make a story. And it can actually get quite overwhelming. Savannah helped me cut through the noise and focus on what was most important in my story and I finished my first 100,000-word draft! So excited!"
