Want to Tell Stories That Are Irresistible?

Learn to Tell Irresistible Stories… and Let Them Think You Were Born That Way!

Would you love to be recognised as a writer of great stories? Do you find it hard to get the words to come out right, though? Is it proving harder to get people to take notice of your writing than you thought it would be? Do you feel frustrated, looking at others’ work and wishing you could do that?

You may sometimes doubt that you even have the talent to tell a story. It can seem like every author whose work you read must have been born that way.

Perhaps you are struggling to get attention as a writer of fiction. You might have personal stories to tell but they don’t seem to have any impact on people. How demoralising. It doesn’t seem to matter how many courses in creative writing you’ve signed up to, nothing seems to help you make headway. You could be almost ready to give up. 

 

Or maybe you’re quite new to writing stories as an adult and you’ve realised that it’s not simply a case of writing down what characters do and what they are thinking and feeling. Not if you want to gain a following of readers. You may be starting to wonder how on earth those fabulous writers who inspired you to pick up your pen are able to produce such gripping stories.

Here’s the thing… it is best explained by Ernest Hemingway, who said, “It is none of their business that you had to learn how to write. Let them think you were born that way.” If even Hemingway acknowledged that writing stories is not purely a natural gift, then why shouldn’t YOU learn?

‘Why Don’t People Pay Attention to My Stories?’

 

Don’t take it personally. We all receive thousands of messages every day. We filter most of them out without even knowing we are doing it. It isn’t anything to do with YOU that people don’t pay attention to your stories. The Storytellers’ Academy can help you get people to WANT to read your work. You will learn to tell stories in a way that engages their imaginations and emotions, and gets them hanging on your every word.

If this sounds like you, The Storytellers’ Academy is for you. Join today.

 

I Can Teach You the Secrets

 Whether the stories you want to tell are fictional or personal, the same principles of storytelling apply. They are the principles that have applied ever since people first learned to communicate through speech. It’s not a fad or a fashion… it’s the way people get into others’ imaginations and emotions.

What I do in The Storytellers’ Academy is help you learn the solid techniques to tell a story that people will find irresistible. I teach you how to engage your audience so that they feel like they are really there in your story and experiencing it for themselves. By achieving this you will be able to build your fan base of avid readers who can’t wait to read your next work. Perhaps they will be convinced that YOU are a great writer who was just born that way!

 Gaining the skills and techniques to write stories is an activity that takes persistence and regular review. That is why membership of The Storytellers’ Academy is yours for as long as you want. It is not a short term course that pushes you through a series of exercises.

 

How The Storytellers’ Academy Works

 The modules are designed to break down the skills of storytelling to word level. This helps you learn how to build a strong foundation for your writing. It means that you will be able to put one word after another and have confidence that you are creating an engaging piece. I have been determined in creating The Storytellers’ Academy that it will not be just another creative writing course that shows a lengthy example of something and invites you to produce something similar. I am determined to help you genuinely understand how you can choose and place your words wisely.

When you join The Storytellers’ Academy, you also gain access to the members-only Facebook group. This is more than a support group. It is an integral part of the process of becoming a fantastic writer of stories, because in there you will be able to practise and develop your new skills with regular challenges and gain valuable feedback. To be a writer, you must write.

In addition to this, joining The Storytellers’ Academy gives you a 1:1 hour long mentoring session with me. (Valued at £97 when bought separately from a package.) Additional 1:1 sessions can be booked by Storytellers’ Academy members at a discounted rate of £57. Individual mentoring is invaluable for helping you see your way through the maze when you are working on your projects. You can get new ideas, check on whether you’re making your current ideas work for you, plus that vital accountability. Sessions are delivered over Zoom.

Don’t believe the LIE!

The LIE? What’s that?

The LIE is the message which has grown up over recent generations that great storytellers are born that way. That the rest of us can’t possibly become wonderful storytellers because the words don’t just flow out of us as we wish they would.

Here’s the truth… those great writers…? They have to work on it, too. They have to learn their craft. (Even the likes of Hemingway.) They make mistakes. They suffer self-doubt. Just like the rest of us.

You can learn. The Storytellers’ Academy can get you there. Contact me to book a call to discuss whether membership will be a good fit for you.
