You've finally written your piece, but something about it is a bit off... but what?

The Writer's Eye: Reading Like a Writer is a course that will give you a repeatable process for troubleshooting your own written work. Through a ton of writing drills, we'll train your eye in paying attention to the words and sentences that create the reading experience. By the end of class, you'll have practiced spotting what works and what doesn't, understanding why something doesn't work, and identifying what can be done to make it work—transforming that ugly zero draft into polished writing.

Note: Most of our courses are for writing stories, but the tools given in this class can be applied to writing articles, academic papers, business correspondence, etc.


Minimum age for this workshop: 14 years old

Our teacher

The Writer's Eye: Reading Like a Writer is taught by Dr. Joem Antonio. A published author and playwright, he holds a Ph.D. in Creative Writing from UP Diliman and is an eight-time Palanca Award winner. He believes that writing is a skill that can be learned by even those who weren't magically "born with the talent." Through his writing courses and workshops, he teaches writing as a science, leaving students with clear methods that allow them to move their writing projects forward.
