Let’s take some time, get together and have a chat.

Your favourite drink and cake is optional.

Open to ALL Treehouse Club members only.
Join here.

Tuesday 10 September – WORKSHOP – The Basics of Outlining and Plotting Workshop

For Nightingale members only.
Join The Treehouse Club.

I used to keep a loose plan for a story in my head as I wrote, never writing the outline down.
The result?
I never finished anything.
I’d get bored, forget what happened next and get distracted by the next shiny idea.

Have an outline and a plan can not only help you to develop your plot and characters, but it’ll keep you motivated and writing when the going gets tough (and it always gets tough!). It’ll help you work out a writing schedule, create deadlines and FINISH YOUR BOOK!

And that’s what we’ll be covering in this workshop. I’ll be taking you through my process of creating an outline and plot for your novel.
You’ll get a free outline template (currently already available for Treehouse Club members).

Tuesday 8 October – WORKSHOP – “Dialogue,” she said, “And how to make it real.”

For Nightingale members only.
Join The Treehouse Club.

Have you ever read a book where the dialogue just seemed a bit…off?
Stilted perhaps.
Or everyone sounded the same?

Unrealistic dialogue can be infuriating for readers, whilst realistic dialogue can pull the reader in and give them insight into your characters that no amount of description can.

In this workshop, I’ll go through my top tips for writing realistic dialogue and discovering how your characters actually talk, as well as some areas to tread carefully.

There’ll be a handout with exercises in that will work for each and every one of your characters or just as practice inbetween stories.

Tuesday 12 November – WORKSHOP – Start Marketing Your Fiction Now

For Nightingale members only.
Join The Treehouse Club.

The beauty and hell of marketing is that it’s always changing and the best time to start was last year.
You can start marketing your book AT ANY POINT so why not start now?

Even if you have nothing written yet or you’re struggling through your first draft, in this workshop I’ll take you through what you can be doing right now to market your book and your writing in general.

After a decade of working in marketing, gaining qualifications and selling my own books, this is something I can for hours about. But I won’t this time. I promise!
Just an hour, with all of the juicy bits you need to know included.

You’ll also get a free marketing plan template for your writing that you can start filling in during the workshop.

Tuesday 10 December – WORKSHOP – Planning Your Fiction 2020

For Nightingale members only.
Join The Treehouse Club.

2019 is nearly over! Eek!
How did your writing go this year?

Start 2020 with a bang.
Get organised, get writing and get stuff done.

In this Christmassy, friendly workshop I’ll take you through how I plan out my year of writing and what you can do to stay on top of your plan, even in July when the sun is out and you’ve forgotten what you’re supposed to be doing.

This workshop comes with a free 2020 writing plan template for you to fill in.

‘…of all the writing coaches I’ve found so far, you are easily my favourite in terms of teaching ability, likability, and the trust you inspire.’

‘Thanks for putting this together, Jenny! It really got me motivated to get going on my novel. I’m a newbie at all this, but I’m excited to see where it goes. I’m now 11 poems/scenes into my story and feeling like I really can do this :)’
