The Greenleaf Difference

The Greenleaf Difference

Here’s how my novel writing workshops will help you finish your novel and sell it to a commercial publisher:

  • One-on-one instruction. I’ll work directly with you as you develop your story idea, create your characters, build your background setting, and write your novel. Check out my credentials below.
  • Communication. You can reach me via email or telephone when you have questions. What if you run into a snag while you’re developing your story idea? What if you’re unsure how to handle character viewpoint? Have you found any other online writing workshops that offer direct communication with your instructor?
  • No classes to attend. Start when you want and work at your own pace as you advance through each section of the Guidebook, sending me assignments via email. I’ll review and critique your assignments and return them to you promptly.
  • Affordability. You can start with the Fundamentals of Novel Writing workshop for only $495.
  • 30-day no-risk guarantee. You’ll have 30 days to examine the Guidebook and other workshop materials. If you decide the workshop isn’t right for you, you’ll get a full refund. No questions asked.
  • Free story idea review. Maybe you aren’t sure if your story idea is a good one. Tell me about your story idea and I’ll tell you whether or not it’s right for a novel. No charge.
