Write a Killer Story

this Year with Us


You’re excited about writing your genre story, but you want to improve your craft and are seeking guidance, accountability, and support. We can help.

As long-time, successful teachers, we’re committed to giving you the hands-on editorial feedback you need to progress from week-to-week. As writers, we understand that creating compelling characters and meaningful stories requires delving into our memories, fears, and desires. We help you unlock the heart of your story.

We’re also film and TV professionals and we use our combined backgrounds to help you craft an exciting, cinematic work, an increasing must in the competitive publishing and screenwriting space.

Unlike most of the writing courses out there, we love genre works so much we specialize in them. To us, genre just means “category.” And great storytelling is great storytelling no matter how it’s labeled.

Our first series of online writing classes will teach you the fundamentals of mystery, suspense, and horror and then help you build on the essentials to write a killer work.

Whether you’re looking to revise a draft or are starting from scratch, our unique process will save you time and help you prepare a thrilling genre work.
