We'll teach you how to build stories in steps and stages that you'll be able to replicate outside of class.

Learning by doing

What better way to learn writing than by, you guessed it, writing! Our classes include lectures, but you'll be doing writing exercises for the most part.

Each course has specific target outputs or skills that you'll attain after having done all the required exercises.

Our online writing courses are flexible but have time-sensitive milestones.

When you join your course's Google Classroom, you'll have access to all the coursework (text lectures and writing exercises) which you'll accomplish at your own pace. Within the seven-day class duration, you'll be able to submit your writing exercises to your assigned writing coach, who will give feedback on your work as necessary. You may also post questions if you're confused about any of the concepts taught in the course. If you successfully accomplish and submit all the writing exercises within seven days, you'll receive your digital certificate the following week, as well as a digital freebie.

To guide you better, your coach will also offer you a one-on-one coaching call, where he/she will try to understand your goals and circumstances. While this call is optional, we encourage you to avail of it so that we can tailor-fit the online course experience to your needs.

After the end of the seven days, we'll collect questions that the class may have for our course creator, Dr. Joem Antonio. He'll answer your questions through a vlog.

Note: Students aged 8-12 are required to have a parent or guardian assisting the child in going through coursework.
