ABOUT THE COURSE
As children we are the ultimate masters of storytelling. Our minds were primed for creative exploration. But, the older we get, the more adulting seems to get in the way of that creative journey. Let's turn those ideas loose together in, "Idea to Editor," our manuscript writing master course!
In this accelerated, eight-week online course, you'll dissect the foundations of a strong manuscript, map your outline, and with the help of our guided prompts and activities write your way to a completed manuscript. We won't pretend that it's going to be a cakewalk. However, if you're willing to commit to writing daily for the duration of two sitcoms during the week, and at least one Disney movie per day on the weekends, we're willing to help you on your journey to build from Idea to Editor.
Together we'll guide you through the LaunchCrate method we've successfully used for years to help authors finish their manuscripts. Course sessions meet Thursday evenings, for 90 minutes each. Keep scrolling to check out the weekly outline.

We're at a moment in time where things are fluid and ever changing. If the 2020s have taught us anything, it's that we only have this moment, right now.
You've likely postponed the writing of your manuscript for a while, which might have led to feelings of discontent, overwhelm or frustration. Usher in a sense of relief and triumph, while reigniting the childlike sense of exploration within you.
