Private Tutor: Creative Writing

I offer private lessons for those interested in taking their fiction writing to a new level. These classes take place over Zoom and are aimed at people who want to learn more about the essential elements of craft. Some of the elements of storytelling we talk about include: Plot, Sub-plot, Point of View, Character, Theme, Setting, Language, Style, Tone, Dialogue, Beginnings, Endings, Editing and Publishing. I will work with you to help you produce a story that’s ready for publishing. I hold an MA in Creative Writing from the University of East Anglia, and it is this knowledge that I will use to guide you to improve your writing. If interested, please  send an email to troy@troyonyango.com.
