Do you dream of leaving your office job and making your mark on the world by writing a wildly popular book or creating a magnificent blog read by thousands—if not millions—of people?

Do you wish you were able to write business reports, sales emails, website copy, cover letters or college essays with supreme confidence?

Imagine, then, what it would be like if you could write with the style and flair of journalists on top newspapers such as The Wall Street Journal and The Economist.

Welcome to the brand new second edition of Secret Sauce Of Great Writing, a program that will show you how it's possible to upgrade your business writing, blog writing and copywriting skills to that level extremely fast. 

The course is taught by Shani Raja, author of the bestselling Udemy course Writing With Flair: How To Become An Exceptional Writer and a former Wall Street Journal senior editor and writing coach, as well as an ex-contributor to The Economist, the FT, Dow Jones and Bloomberg News

In this course, Shani will introduce you to the fundamental four ingredients of exceptional writing:

  1. Simplicity

  2. Clarity

  3. Elegance

  4. Evocativeness

In as little as an hour, you'll know exactly how to apply this "secret sauce" to your own writing—putting you way ahead of other writers in your profession or industry.

"Outstanding course from the get go..." — Rudyard von, Udemy student

"A genuine recipe to produce attention-grabbing writing..."  Hassan Masood, Udemy student

"Revolutionary..." — Marie-Rose Davis, Udemy student

"Impressive..." — Cornelia M. Lorenzo, Udemy student

"Priceless..."  — Alimaa Batchuluun, Udemy student

The secret sauce

The first three ingredients in the secret sauce—simplicity, clarity and elegance—respectively make your writing punchy, crisp and graceful.

Evocativeness is the fourth quality that makes your prose stimulating.

When you put those four ingredients together in a piece of writing, it will become truly outstanding. 

In fact, it's the exact formula Shani has used for many years to edit articles devoured regularly by millions of people worldwide.

Perhaps you've always felt your writing was too weak to get noticed or make an impact. Maybe you've struggled to figure out how to improve it, or even to know where to begin.

Don't worry.

This course will reveal the writing tactics of world-class editors in a well structured and easy-to-follow format.

You'll find that as soon as you incorporate those four ingredients (simplicity, clarity, elegance and evocativeness) into your writing, you'll see a seismic shift in the impact of your words and sentences.

"Goes beyond the bland lessons of early education by adding flavor and life to your prose..." — Billy Williams, Udemy student

"Excellent advice and interaction kept me glued to this course..." — John Faherty, Udemy student

"Really gives you the ability to see how your writing could improve..." — Cameron M. Kreider, Udemy student

"Shattered my opinion about good writing..." — Bilal Ahmad,  Udemy student

"Thank you for enlightening us..." — Tanpreet Kaur Narula, Udemy student

"Makes you feel comfortable and excited about writing..." — Travis Fry, Udemy student

"Helped me to see exactly what I needed..." — Shalecia Tatiana Wallace, Udemy student 

How many job interviews might you have lost because your cover letters and resume didn't hit home?

How many customers might you have turned off because the words on your website were too dull and uninspiring to read?

How many books or blog posts have you quit writing, or put off, because you couldn't figure out why your sentences and words lacked the power to captivate a reader?

You'll find the answers to such questions in this course, your first glimpse into the wondrous world of elite writing.

Not tips, but a writing system

This entry-level writing course doesn't focus on the technical aspects of writing, such as grammar rules.

Rather, it reveals the powerful key principles that will enable you quickly to design more stylish prose.

Nor will you get a bunch of fragmented writing "tips" you could pick up anywhere on the internet.

This is an all-encompassing writing system that will change forever the way you think about and approach the craft.

Your essays, cover letters, press releases, marketing copy and sales emails—not to mention books and blog posts—will never look the same again. 

"Most great teachers can't write, and most great writers can't teach. Shani Raja is one of the few who excels at both. I managed dozens of reporters and editors during my 12-year career at Bloomberg News. Now he's the person I go to when I want help with my writing." NICOLAS JOHNSON, FORMER BLOOMBERG AND GLOBE AND MAIL EDITOR.

"As a young reporter my prose might have been robotic and jargon-laden if not for Shani's watchful eye and attention to the elusive human interest behind ostensibly technical stories. Beyond the standard (yet crucial) reporting skills—like accuracy, clarity and integrity—I also learned refinement, how to withstand impulses toward glibness and cynicism that can naturally set in when oft revisiting the same beat. Shani will teach you how to write well, and with grace." HAWA ALLAN, JOURNALIST AND FICTION WRITER.

Who doesn't want to enhance their prospects by writing much more stylishly than their peers and competitors?

Or to make a mark on the world by writing an outstanding book or creating a magnificent blog read by thousands—or even millions—of people?

After taking this course, that could be you.

It teaches you how to become not just an exceptional writer, but a masterful one. You'll know exactly how to get your writing noticed.

In Ninja Writing, you will discover how to embed quality at EVERY LAYER of your writing—whether it’s a blog, article, college essay, cover letter, corporate report or content marketing.

By the end, you’ll appreciate exactly how one piece of writing can be strikingly beautiful while another—on the same subject—bores you to tears.

"Up to this point, you've probably been bored with so many writing teachers who emphasize 'structure' through grammar tips and organization with a shot of word selection. But Shani covers that missing component: the artistry of writing. Writing can be just as fulfilling as painting, drawing or designing..." -- SANDY, UDEMY STUDENT 

"Even my degree did not teach me to write at these levels..." -- YAP WAN XIANG, UDEMY STUDENT

So, what exactly is a ninja writer?

It's someone who can take disjointed thoughts and ideas and create beautiful narratives out of them.

That is the hallmark of a distinguished writer: one who understands how to build points elegantly, wrap them into neatly arranged sections, and then thread the ideas through exquisitely organized paragraphs.

A ninja writer has mastery over the sentence layer of writing as well.

He or she instinctively understands how to tighten loose sentences, sharpen blurred ones, and bring rhythm to those that don't flow well.

Finally, ninja writers wield invincible power over words. They’re able to bring color, variety and freshness into their writing through their word choices, while slicing away any that have lost their edge or carry dead weight.

While a bad writer can make a mess even of the most sublime thinking, a ninja writer’s prose—blogs, essays, or any kind of business writing—always ends up looking spectacularly polished.

The fact is that great writing isn’t just a nice skill to have. It’s vital to conveying intelligence and professionalism to your bosses, clients, business partners, and blog or book readers.

Frankly, if you don't have this part of your life handled, you'll probably get fewer career chances, less shots at a promotion, and not as many eyeballs online.

And instinctively you know it.

If you’re a blogger, the world may miss out on your brilliant ideas, simply because your writing is too dull or unwieldy to take seriously. 

Remember that we live in the internet age, where a growing army of writers are competing to get noticed in an expanding sea of content.

This course will give you an edge.

It’ll quickly take your writing to a level of refinement that will mystify anybody who doesn’t know these elite techniques.

Here's a chance to take your writing to a level that, honestly, blows your competition out of the water.

"All I can say is WOW! After only a few lessons I went from struggling to write fewer than five hundred coherent words in two hours to easily churning out well written, well thought out content in less than 20 minutes." -- LISA THOMPSON, UDEMY STUDENT

Just the understanding that writing has four layers can make a huge difference to how effectively you communicate.

If you don't know anything about those layers yet, don’t fret.

Only a handful of writers do, and many are editors who work, as I have done, for top news organizations.

They spend all day bringing order and beauty to whatever article is presented to them.

They know how to focus on areas that bring structure to untidy prose, and a razor-sharp focus to disorderly ideas.

I know how rare this skill is because until recently I was an editor at The Wall Street Journal, where I taught many of the newspaper's journalists how to add style, flair and potency to their articles.

I've also written for The Economist, Financial Times, Bloomberg News and other highly regarded news institutions.

In Ninja Writing, I share what I’ve learned at those places under the mentorship of some of the best editors in the world.

Once you've learned their secrets, you too will be able to weave magic with your words.

You'll know how to create spellbinding narratives, breathe life to tired sentences, and dazzle readers with the words you choose.

You'll also write with more confidence.

"My writing has dramatically improved..." -- LYNN, UDEMY STUDENT

"Can’t wait to use all the tricks and techniques..." -- ADAPERIO, UDEMY STUDENT

"The Strunk and White guide for today's world... sure to be a classic..." -- DERRICK HOWELL, UDEMY STUDENT

One of the biggest problems novice writers have is not knowing if their writing is any good.

That won’t be a problem for you anymore.

You’ll know that it is.

Ninja Writing: The Four Levels Of Writing Mastery takes the mystery out of the writing process.

The tricks and tactics taught here will create a seismic shift in the quality of your writing, almost immediately.

You’ll express yourself as brilliantly as some of the slickest editors on the planet.

You’ll understand how to turn any kind of mediocre business writing into masterful prose.

The content here goes beyond what is taught in Writing With Flair: How To Become An Exceptional Writer, one of Udemy’s best-selling courses.

In Writing With Flair, I gave you a powerful framework for creating outstanding writing based on the three principles of simplicity, clarity and elegance.

The sweep of Ninja Writing: The Four Levels Of Writing Mastery is much broader.

It covers the whole territory of nonfiction writing, giving you a ground-up-and-top-down view of what’s needed to inject quality into EVERY PORE of your writing.

If Writing With Flair turned you into an exceptional writer, Ninja Writing will mould you further into an elite one.

Like my other courses, Ninja Writing steers clear of needlessly complicated jargon. You’ll simply get strategies to help you write with impeccable style and poise.

The course has been designed to help you reach the top of the learning curve in as little as a few days.

You’ll discover ways of looking at your writing that will elevate it to a plane most others don’t even know exists.

In Ninja Writing, I reveal the four levels of writing mastery you must work to perfect.

THE NARRATIVE LEVEL

How to connect with your audience, organize your writing magnificently, start your piece with a bang, end with a flourish, and embed it with powerful imagery. Getting the structure right is one of the hardest skills to master, but I'll make it super easy for you in this section.

THE SENTENCE LEVEL

BENEFIT FROM THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE WRITING COURSE ON UDEMY

As its name suggests, Writing With Confidence: Writing Beginner To Writing Pro takes you from the writing fundamentals right through to the elite techniques practised by the world’s top copywriters. Top copywriters like your instructor, Dr Clare Lynch, in fact.

From the very first lectures, you’ll be inspired to beat writer’s block and get something down on the page. You'll also gain instant ideas for taking your first draft from OK to outstanding.

Next, you’ll discover a secret most writing and editing teachers won’t share with you: that good writing isn’t just about the writing. For the most part, good writing is about the thinking you do before you even sit down at your laptop or open your journal.

That’s because, when it comes to becoming a powerful writer – the sort of writer who gets the job, closes the sale or wins buy-in for your ideas - it’s not about the technicalities of spelling and grammar. It’s about your ability to connect with your reader on an emotional, intellectual and visceral level.

That’s why early on in the course, you’ll learn powerful, little-known techniques for really getting under the skin of your readers. Techniques that will allow you to write in a way that grabs people’s attention immediately – and keeps them addictively glued to your writing.

You’ll also learn expert tips and techniques for confidently honing your message down to its essentials, to keep your reader focused on what matters most to you. Tips that will save you time as a writer – and get you better results.

As the course progresses, you’ll learn what words to choose, how to turn turgid, lifeless sentences into attractive musical phrases that compel people to keep reading.

In the second half of the course, you’ll discover how to apply recent findings of neuroscience to make your messages stick. In this part of the course, you’ll learn how to use imagery to paint unforgettable word-pictures in your reader’s mind.

You’ll also discover the secret narrative structure underpinning the most persuasive stories. The narrative structure that’s made millions for the makers of Toy Story and persuaded the British to vote for Brexit. The same narrative structure that your instructor, Dr Clare Lynch, deployed in a tear-jerking speech that allowed a CEO to win over the hearts and minds of employees.

In the final section of the course, you’ll take your writing to a level only achieved by the world’s top copywriters and political speech writers. In this part of the course, you’ll learn how to apply the ancient art of rhetoric to any piece of writing to create rhythmic, emotionally resonant writing that’s totally unforgettable.

And throughout the course, you’ll have an opportunity to put into practice what you’ve learned. Every lecture in Writing With Confidence: Writing Beginner To Writing Pro delivers a short, sharp, instantly practical tip you can apply to your writing TODAY.

This course will teach you how to use the power of words to change the way people think, feel and act. Writing well is a vital part of any successful career or business. If you want to thrive at work you need to thrive at writing. By the end of this course, you will have developed writing skills that will propel your career to the next level.

  • 5 STAR REVIEW - “This is such an amazing well structured, clear/concise course with immense value for anyone who needs to write articles and content of any nature.” A.P.

My name is Mark Morris. I’m an award-winning professional speechwriter with more than fifteen years of experience writing for senior politicians in the United Kingdom and internationally – including for two former Prime Ministers. During my career I’ve written thousands of speeches to audiences across Europe and North America.

I’ve written countless debates in the British Parliament. I’ve written articles for newspapers including The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, La Repubblica, El Pais, The Times and Die Welt. I’ve also written for magazines including Wired and Newsweek. I even had the honour of writing an historic and award-winning speech to a joint meeting of the United States Congress. In this course, I’ll give you the full benefit of my years of experience and expertise to set you on the path to writing success.

  • 5 STAR REVIEW - “I really enjoyed the course. Each lesson was interesting and full of examples. Mark is a real specialist in his field and it's clear that he is passionate about his work. You are not only listening to empty words but learning from someone's experience - which for me is the best way. Even now, writing this review, I am trying to implement what I have learnt - which is a good proof of this course being a 5 stars one.” A.A.

This is not a technical course full of complex grammar. It focusses on the timeless principles that you can use to produce clear, powerful, persuasive writing.

The course starts by looking at what good writing is and at the evidence as to why writing well is so important. The course is then divided into three main sections: before you write (planning), while you write (writing), and after you write (editing).

Part One: Planning: In this section, I’ll show you what you need to do before you put pen to paper. We’ll ask the big questions you need to answer for everything you write:

  • What is your objective? If you don’t know what you want, you’re unlikely to get it.

  • Who is your reader? Only by understanding your reader and consciously writing for them can you achieve your objectives.

  • What is your voice? Who or what do your words represent? Yourself, your boss, your company? Only by having a clear and consistent voice can you achieve your objectives.

I’ll then show you how to plan and structure your work to lead your reader from where they are to where you want them to be.

  • 5 STAR REVIEW - “Loved this course! Mark gives you what you need to write in clear English. He goes directly to the point with his ideas, examples, and summaries. After doing this course, I started to see that my writing has improved. My sentences are shorter, cleaner, and more direct. I can't wait to continue to practice all learned in the course. Here's fresh news! Mark remastered the videos recently. Now, it's much more pleasant to watch and to listen. Go for it that you won't regret.” B.B.

Part Two: Writing: In this second section, I’ll guide you through the building blocks of writing: words, sentences, paragraphs and the whole piece. I’ll show you how to choose the right words and put them in the best order so you can achieve your objectives.

In this section you’ll learn techniques both ancient and modern that will turn your words into a powerful engine for achieving your goals. We’ll look at the logic and emotion of your words and at establishing credibility with your reader. I’ll also take you through many of the most common mistakes that people make in their writing, and how to avoid them.

  • 5 STAR REVIEW - “I loved the way he explained things, simple yet profound. Easy to understand; he lives up to his words. Highly recommended. Thank you so much.” B

Part Three: Editing: In this section you’ll learn the vital art of editing. I’ll show you how to sharpen and smooth your first draft into something you can be truly proud of. I’ll show you how to test your words to see if they are clear, understandable and – most important - achieve your objectives.

  • 5 STAR REVIEW - “I thoroughly enjoyed this course. It was fully comprehensive and packed with valuable tips to improve any type of writing. The tutor obviously had a lot of writing experience and didn’t hold back in sharing his knowledge. I liked the way he explained how to deal with writer’s block as it sounds very effective. I’ll definitely use it the next time my head feels empty.” S.M.

Finally, I’ll share some of the techniques I use to be a productive and successful writer. I’ll show you how you can enter a ‘State of Flow’, where excellent writing comes easily, and how you can avoid ever suffering from writer’s block.

In each section, I’ll take you step-by-step through the techniques, tricks and habits that can transform your writing.

If you want to promote your business, excel in your career, and feel proud of your writing, Better Business Writing is the course for you.

This Udemy course gives you, the English language learner, everything you need to improve your mastery of English writing.

This course will give you the ability to understand English better and the confidence to write English more fluently.

Please note that this is NOT a course for budding authors and journalists. There are many other excellent courses for those areas of writing but this is aimed at English language learners who wishes to improve their writing ability.

Many writing courses are light on grammar and punctuation and some are proud to completely omit these important aspects. This course fills the gap and shows the importance of good grammar and punctuation when applied to writing.

This English writing course is taught by two world-renowned communications trainers, TJ Walker and Derek Smith.

Message from Derek Smith:

My name is Derek, I’m a native Brit and qualified and experienced TEFL/TESOL trainer.

I have been teaching English to adults for over 10 years and look forward to using technology to reach a wider audience.

I have a neutral accent which is clear and easy to understand.

This might not be the longest course on Udemy but I do respect your time.

The lessons are as long as necessary, and as short as possible.

Downloadable PDFs for each lesson will form a valuable resource collection for you.

The course is not designed to be accessed in sequence but takes more of a pick and mix approach.

I encourage you to ask questions if you feel that something has not been fully or clearly explained. You will get an answer and, if necessary, the course material will be updated. Depending on the answer, I will add a new lesson to the course.

Here is a brief summary of the course benefits for you:

  • Native speaker

  • Experienced and qualified teacher

  • Neutral and easy to understand accent

  • Lessons structured for easy access

  • Downloadable resources for each lesson

  • No bloated lessons to trick you or waste your time

  • Valid for UK and US English

  • Updates as required by the learners

  • Udemy 30-day refund policy

How many of your boxes did I tick?

This is the English writing course you need. I look forward to seeing you on the inside.

Message from TJ Walker

I have been teaching executives around the globe to deliver presentations in English for the last 30 years. Most people, even native English speakers, are insecure about their English grammar. You can become an accomplished speaker and communicator and know that you are using excellent English Grammar every time you speak.

Derek is one of the top English grammar instructors in the world and I am proud to be teaching this course with him. He has the English and European sensibility down perfectly. And I have been living in and working in the United States my entire life. When you put us together, it is a powerful combination designed to help you become a master at English grammar and communication.

Good luck and I hope to see you inside the course!

Tell Your Story Today... 

Isn't it time you finally told the story inside your heart?  Within this course, I will explain how to organize and begin writing a short story, novella, novel or non-fiction book.  The concepts are similar for each form.  The number of balls you need to keep in the air and for how long are the only things that differ. 

  If I don't write to empty my mind, I go mad.
  -- Lord Byron 

Learn the Components of Successful Storytelling... 

Plot, character, and place.  Learn how to juggle them all like a professional.  Learn how to discipline yourself to put the first words on the page.  Learn the even greater discipline required to put the last words on the page. 

  The thing about writing is that you never stop learning and improving your craft, and a review of the basics is helpful even to an established, USA Today bestselling author like myself. Jackson's deceptively simple course on writing a first novel is concise, and covers crucial points that every writer should know and constantly keep in mind. I especially enjoyed his advice on handling writer's block and its causes; I am guilty of reason #3. Sigh. A useful course, even for those who think they don't need it.
  -- Lisa Cach, USA Today Bestselling Author of the "1,001 Erotic Nights" series 

For the Storyteller, There is No Greater Joy... 

All your life, you've carried this story with you.  Perhaps uncertain or fearful of rejection.  But there is no burden greater than carrying an untold story. 

  A non-writing writer is a monster courting insanity.

Who I am

I've written hundreds of resumes and been fortunate to get a lot of interviews from them. I've interviewed at big companies like Google, IBM, Caterpillar and Amazon. I've interviewed at the world's largest winery and the world's largest contractor. I've even interviewed with many global consulting firms including A.T. Kearney, Deloitte, and Accenture. I didn't get these opportunities because I was smarter than someone else - I got a lot of help preparing my resume from other people with experience and that made all the difference.

But I've also reviewed a lot of resumes so I have experience on both sides of the table. In this course I'll share with you what I've learned in my experience, and the things I've seen give a lot of other people success. And I've reviewed other folk's resumes so you can see common mistakes from people with all different backgrounds, all over the world, and avoid the same mistakes on your own resumes!

I want to see you improve your resume and get more interviews!

A resume is a very important piece of document which decides your eligibility for any job. If you have an exceptional set of skills but are unable to fabricate a proper resume then you might miss out on a good job offer. You can even think of your resume as a sales-pitch which can be referred by recruiters to judge your credibility. So if you structure your resume well, provide the right information and use the right keywords at the right location, you can improve your profile’s visibility. In this course, we will start with the very basics of resume writing, talk about the items that recruiters look out for and mention the right places to upload your resume, in order to gain the highest visibility.

We divided the entire resume into different sections and targeted each section individually to specify its importance and how you can fill them with the right information. We talk about the importance of a brief summary section and how choosing the right keywords can improve your resume. While constructing the course material we went through different resume templates and worked with different designs, so that you yourselves can create a resume which makes full utilization of the available space without compromising with the look and feel. After going through the tutorial you would be able to:

  • Find out the right editing tools that can be used for creating a resume.
  • Know, why content in the resume is so important and what do recruiters actually look for in it?
  • How to make your resume stand out from other applicants?
  • Selecting the best styling options to increase your resume’s visibility?
  • The common mistakes while creating a resume
  • Make sections to structure the content
  • Optimize resume real estate to include maximum skills
  • Know the behavior of ATS (Applicant Tracking System) to increase your chances of interview calls
  • Selecting the right keywords based on your profession to increase visibility on job portals and after portfolio selection.
  • Mention past experiences in the right way
  • Figure out the right way to create a multi-page resume
  • Find out the distinct formatting required for multi-page resume
  • Know how lengthy a resume should be
  • Finalize your resume and revising, to smooth out the rough edges
  • Know about the best places or portals to upload your resume
  • Get to know about the best practices while carrying or producing your resume during a personal interview

In this tutorial, we start by covering the basic types of resume and which type suits your purpose the best. We talk about the pros and cons of each resume type and provide resume samples of each. Then, we jump right into the different steps for resume writing. We have also created a plan which you can follow step by step to create the perfect resume for yourself.

We have also covered the various text editing tools available in the market across different platforms which can be used for creating your resume and used Google docs to create the resume template. While following the plan, we first laid down the characteristic features that a recruiter looks for and made sure that we build the template ground up using that approach. To get the aesthetics right, we select margin, alignment, font styling and line spacing that meets the industry standard and grabs the attention of the recruiters as well.

As this tutorial is meant for freshers as well as the experience lot, we have discussed how resume length varies with expertise. The tutorial covers single-page resume and multi-page resume and clearly defines the guidelines for both. How multi-page resume needs to be structured and what are the ideal practices that need to be followed. Be it any profession, designing, photography, software development or testing, management, marketing or advertising, this tutorial would teach you how to create the perfect resume.

Every section and its significance have been clearly described in the tutorial along with clear examples to further increase the usefulness of this course. We have also shared a dummy template which you can download and use it for creating your own resume. It's that simple!

While creating this tutorial, our primary focus was to understand the current recruitment process thoroughly and use this knowledge to lay down the structure of the perfect resume template. We made sure that the template that you will be having at the end of this tutorial would not only be easily readable by the ATS but also grab the attention of the recruiters. We went though many resume samples and tried to single out the aspects that are not recommended. At the end of this tutorial, you would be sure of the best practices related to resume development and know some cool tricks to increase your resume’s visibility.

Report writing: take the pain out of planning and the sweat out of structuring!

For most people, the hardest part of report writing is getting started. In this course, you're going to learn how to shave hours, days or even weeks off the report writing process through intelligent planning. You'll learn what questions to ask so you're not reinventing the wheel when you sit down to write your report. 

But best of all, you'll discover a miraculous technique that will completely revolutionise how you go about structuring your reports. I developed this technique while working with a client who had been tearing his hair out at that early shaping stage. With my help, in under five minutes he went from having no clue about how to order his report to imposing a clear, coherent, logical structure on his ideas.

I've since gone on to share this technique with other report writers and trust me they're always blown away by its power and simplicity. I can't wait to share this technique with you - and you'll be glad I did!

Report writing with impact to win readers over

But this course won't just save you time as a writer. It will also help you save your readers time - and they will love you for it!

The American novelist Elmore Leonard famously advised writers to leave out the parts that readers skip. And I'm going to be showing you how to leave out the parts of a report all, yes ALL, readers skip. The pointless parts every report writer thinks are helping readers, but are really hindering them.

And I'll be busting some myths about that all important executive summary. It's the only part of your report you can guarantee everyone will read, so you'll want to make sure it's as powerfully persuasive as it can be. I'll show you how.

Stand out from the crowd with a report that looks as good as it reads

Finally, I'll be showing you how to take your almost-finished report up a notch with simple design and layout tips from a seasoned design professional. You'll even discover one little design trick that's been scientifically - yes, scientifically - proven to boost your credibility and persuasiveness with readers.

Writing Great Fantasy: World Building Workshop

Writing fantasy: The step-by-step method to writing a believable and compelling world that will enchant your readers

Created by Jason Link - Writer, Instructor, Speaker, Storyteller

As a fantasy writer, you want to take your readers to exotic places like they’ve never seen before, a world of wonder that they want to get lost in.

Here at the World Building Workshop for Fantasy Writing, that’s my aim. By the end of this course, you will have created a believable and compelling world that your readers will want to get lost in again and again.

"The World Building Workshop for Fantasy Writing" is taught by me, Jason Link, the author of the Legender series, an epic adventure that Publishers Weekly calls a grand fairytale.

For the last 20 years I have been practicing the art of world building in fantasy literature, and in this course, I share with you the insights I've gained on that journey. Years and years of research compiled in one place.

The massive task of world building has been broken down into manageable chunks and follows a logical flow.

In this course, you will...

  • map out your world -- natural features (mountains, rivers, forests, etc.) and people made features (countries, cities, and roads)
  • plan out your world's timeline to get the big picture of your world's story
  • create fantastic creatures that survive in your world's habitats 
  • develop peoples and races and establish their societies and cultures
  • form a healthy relationship between your world and your story
  • learn crucial concepts used all throughout the world building process
  • learn how to establish rules for your world so your world is more believable
  • learn how to create a world of depth so your world is more compelling
  • learn how to create meaningful names for the various people, places, and things in your world

By the end of this course, you will have a believable and compelling world that will enchant your readers.

Praise for Jason's course "World Building for Beginners":

  • "This was a great course! I wrote so many notes down. Each video in each section had so many helpful tips, examples and resources. Well made! This was very motivating. You are very supportive! Thank you!"
  • "This course has gone over in a brief time what I spent the last year learning. Great stuff!"
  • "A good introduction to understanding, developing, and leveraging the relationship of your invented world to the story you write. There are interesting and insightful references in the course that help you develop your new world and story."

Praise for the world building done by Jason Link:

  • "I am not one to lightly compare a fantasy author to Tolkien, for so few have succeeded in creating such vast worlds and peoples as Tolkien did, and even fewer have produced Tolkien's world-spanning mythology. Jason Link has created a vast and beautiful world, peopling it with fantastic creatures and races, while deeply respecting the spiritual underpinnings of the world he has created."
  • "Perhaps the best part of reading was that feeling you get when you are immersed into a different world, which is exactly what Link has built. There are cultures, geographies, languages, and creatures that come together to make a fun yet deeply sophisticated world. In this way, The Legender reminded me of the greats like Tolkien."
  • "The author did a wonderful job of painting a captivating picture of the world of The Legender for us. Although it is a world totally different from our own, I felt connected to it and completely intrigued by the characters, scenery, creatures and story."
  • "The fantasy world that the author draws you into is described in such beautiful detail that it is both believable and compelling. The characters are well-developed and intriguing, and the story definitely picks up the pace as you move along. I will admit that the new creatures are very different from what is seen in other fantasy novels, but the author does a wonderful job of describing these creatures in such a way that your imagination easily fills in the picture."
  • "Jason Link has a gift for not only creating a captivating new world, filled with creatures and cultural practices a reader has never thought of, but also maintaining a consistent and believable voice throughout the twists and turns of the story."
  • "A created world such as this has room for tomes and tomes of adventures and histories for its readers."


Do you wish readers to have a similar reaction to the world of your story?

If so, join me in this course so I can show you how to create a believable and compelling world that will enchant your readers--a world your readers will want to get lost in again and again.
