About the Fiction Mini Courses
Mini courses help you learn the fundamental elements of narrative craft, one subject at a time. These courses are adapted from my comprehensive Fundamentals of Fiction course. You can take one mini-course at a time, or enroll in Fundamentals of Fiction to receive all of the courses at once.
Enrollment Deadline: The current enrollment period closes on December 29th, 2018.
"A lot of good info for a short course. It wasn't watered down. I am becoming a fan of Michelle."
~Niquita, November, 2018
"Easy access, not time limited, I didn't have to work out time zones form the UK! I found it very user-friendly - I like being able to roam about, backwards and forwards. I like the fact that it is in bite-sized chunks, too."
- Hillary, December 2018
