About The Course
This free course focuses on the art of short story and flash fiction writing, with a strong emphasis on getting your work published. It's aimed at beginners and intermediates - writers who want to improve their fiction writing and see their work in print.
The course comprises 5 videos which include:
- 17 key short story writing tips
- details of the most common mistakes short story writers make
- a useful writing exercise
- an opportunity that guarantees publication in a book that is produced in print and eBook formats and distributed globally
- real-life examples
- and much more...
The videos have been professionally filmed and edited. All of the information in the course is presented in a positive, easy to understand format. I share lots of practical advice based on my real-life experiences as an award-winning short story writer and competition judge.
I feel like my short story writer’s block has gone forever. Yesterday, I decided to try Chris's free short story writing course. My eyes were opened. I love the videos and I took part in his sensory challenge. My face is bright pink with excitement. Or is it a hot flush LOL? The course is so inspiring – I will carry on.

Sincere and helpful. Carefully thought out and well presented, with a light touch of humour and without a hint of drivel. An honest approach, which encouraged me to watch and listen on. Chris’s tips are valuable and the exercises are set out in a way that allows the student to participate to a degree which suits them.
