The main issues on the training

Training "Writing a story for a women's gloss" will be held in a closed educational block of the school of the authors of the gloss.

You will have to register on the site and access to all training materials. Yes, you can view them at any time, but we recommend you to study the lessons and complete assignments as they are received.

For convenience and quick communication of basic information will be posted in a closed Facebook group.

We decided to add to the training prefix "workshop" to emphasize that it's a marathon, not a lecture unilaterally, not "party", and full training, in which special importance is given to feedback from students.

We'll tell you what to do and how you do, we check, you fix it. The last two points are repeated until, until you do not get the text to be suitable for publication in a glossy publication.

New material will appear several times a week. For each lesson included mandatory assignments. Also every morning in our group in the VC will be a creative warm-up — mini-exercise on development of creative abilities.

The format of the materials — lectures, video tutorials, webinars (60-90 min. at 20.00 GMT), Skype consultation, a written test (depending on the selected participation package).
