Welcome to the world of 'The Classic'.

'Where the children’s story is simply the right form for what the author has to say, then of course readers who want to hear that, will read the story or re-read it, at any age… I am almost inclined to set it up as a canon that a children’s story which is enjoyed only by children is a bad children’s story. The good ones last.' CS Lewis

Literary fantasy or 'speculative' narrative fiction appeals to readers of all ages and hits the erogenous zones of our imaginations. Think of the all-time best sellers - The Hobbit by Tolkien, The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis, Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie, J.K Rowling's Harry Potter books. 

Yes, there are conventions, some call them ‘rules’, to this bold genre which delves into our subconscious and dabbles in magic. But I am going to show you how once you tick all the boxes, you can create a Neverland that is quite unique to you. In fact, you won't be able to help it.

Who is this course for?

  • This is the course for you if you are writing a big book - speculative fiction, YA or for middle grade + -  and you would like your work to be read by adults (and you should).
  • If you write adult narrative fiction, you will find inspiration here. I'll show you the big story structure and take you on a journey which dusts off your childhood memories, shakes down your fears, and reminds you of who you meant to be. All of that and you'll have a plan in place too for your own 'secondary' world, and a hero and a villain ready for a journey.
  • If you have taken The Ninety Day Novel ® course this will give you a refreshing shot in the arm in terms of plotting and planning and a deeper appreciation of how big stories work.

What’s new here?

Plotting a novel is a major blind spot and the bogeyman for many writers, and this genre needs upfront military-style planning.

This course will lead you through what you need to do before you start writing, making sure you've packed for the journey and providing you will all the tools to get you on the right road to publishing glory.
