Thanks to the incomparable Gary Provost and this breakthrough, comprehensive video workshop, you can affordably learn what you need to know. You can learn it right now, rather than through trial-and-error over a much, much, much longer period of time.

"If you ever thought about writing a novel, or ever wrote one and hid it in a drawer, or ever submitted one and had it rejected, or ever published one and wondered if you could do it again, this program is for you. In a style that is concise, lucid, and studded with vivid examples, Gary Provost makes sense of a seemingly incomprehensible process and teaches you the craft-and it is a craft-of writing fiction."
- William Martin, Best-selling historical author
