Need we say more?
Ever since the first scribe put ink to paper, the craft of writing has been in a constant state of development and learning.
Wordsmith Academy was created to help writers get out of their own way. From crippling self-doubt to poor story planning, from not knowing where to start, to hunting for your ideal agent or publisher, we cover all the bases in our selection of live and self-paced online classes!
Writers, by their very nature, are their own worst critics. They’re constantly mired in paralyzing self-doubt, procrastination plagues them like a shadowy hell-beast, and most of the time, they just don’t know where to start. So what if you decide not to try?
Then I can tell you, without a shadow of a doubt, you’ll never be a writer.
For all the help and support offered through Wordsmith Academy, it’s all going to come down to you placing your fingers on that keyboard. Will we help you get there? Absolutely!
What if you never try? You’ll fail. 100% guaranteed. But, just imagine—what if you do try?
"Brian Bradley is an excellent teacher. He shared a wealth of practical knowledge and strategy in an engaging, warm and encouraging manner. I would jump at the chance to take any of his classes.I look forward to further classes with Wordsmith."
"Brian shared the hard-earned wisdom he's accrued from his years in the trenches of the TV writing business in a witty, conversational style that made the webinar both lively and instructive. I'd recommend any class Brian taught to both new writers starting out and also more experienced scribes looking for a refresher on the basics."
“I definitely learned a lot and enjoyed the interaction with the other participants. Thank you so much for organizing that class. I look forward to more great classes from Wordsmith Academy.”
"Thank you for yet another insightful Wordsmith seminar. Wow. Last night's class gave me a lot to think about. I learned a lot. I like that the class size is small enough that loads of sidebar questions don't derail the presentation."
"Andrew jumped right in and dove deep on my query letter - giving me the feedback and guidance I need to make this thing shine. Not only did he work with me on a few drafts, but he also rewrote it with two different versions, depending on which way I wanted to take it. That was extraordinarily helpful and demonstrated that he not only knows what he is doing, but is willing to go the distance. He really cares about writers and their pitches, and that is rare! Thanks to his help on my pitch, my manuscript was picked up by a publisher. I would definitely get his help in the future!"
“I would heartily encourage anyone who has even an inkling of interest in writing a novel to take this course and tap into your inner author! Feedback on my ‘work in progress’ that was both specific and constructive. The information shared in the workshop educated me on the form and process of novel writing which allowed me to move my writing to a new level.”
