Whether your aim is to write a novel or the shortest of short stories, Kickstart Your Fiction will equip you with a stash of tools to help your writing shine. During this short course, we will look at ways to get started and techniques to keep you on the right track from the first word to the last. This course is ideal for those starting out, though will be useful to writers who have already made a start.
