Each module has an assignment which allows you to practice your Show don't Tell skills and to get personalised professional mentoring on what you write. Your ability to use POV (showing a story from a character Point of View) will improve out of sight.

OPTION 1. Individual Course Modules --  $21.80 each

You may  purchase modules individually at $21.80 each, buying as you want them, paying as you go.   Modules should be bought in order of presentation.  The modules are delivered to your email and you will send your assignment to writing mentor Jim Parsons at and receive mentoring advice on your writing style.
