Whether you’re a visual learner or don’t have the time to sit through a lengthy course, our
bite-sized videos (under ten minutes!) are just what you’re looking for. Watch award-winning author
Celeste Davidson expand on important writing techniques like outlining and revision and explain

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, huge swathes of our courses are non-linear. In
other words, you choose where to start and how quickly to progress. Based on your individual
aptitudes and goals, custom-build your curriculum from our lesson catalogue. It’s completely up to
you. You can also revisit previous lessons anytime you like. Now that’s flexibility!
Ease Into Storytelling With Writing Warmup
Walk before you run: this introductory course walks you through every step of the writing process.
It’s the ideal way for beginners to stretch their writing muscles and familiarize themselves with
Bardsy’s one-of-a-kind approach.
Writing Warmup takes a magic wand to the writing experience, by using the classic fairytale of
Cinderella as a model. You’ll learn how to identify the five essential story elements, then create
your own twist on this classic with a fun, fill-in-the-blank interactive template. It’s
the perfect way to get the “ball” rolling!
Analyze and comment like a pro with Story Talk
Discussing stories, especially your own, multiplies the benefits of reading and writing. These
conversations help deepen social skills while building confidence, respect and empathy. Stories also
open us up to the wider world, as we consider a variety of perspectives.
In Story Talk, we explore how to analyze, discuss and critique any (and we mean any!) story. You’ll
find yourself thinking more deeply about different story elements and their interactions, as well as
how vital the connection is between reader and writer. Importantly, you’ll be able to think more
critically about your own work too.
