Dear Aspiring Writers,

If you want to create a career in media and entertainment world and want your stories to stand out in the cluttered content market, this will be the most important course you will ever take.

Here is why: My name is Virendra Shahaney and twenty-five years ago I was a new aspiring writer like you. I had just started my struggle not knowing how to achieve a breakthrough in this mad world of entertainment. I went around producers’ offices with a story not many people were willing to listen to.

I was desperately searching for a break and then one day I met a producer who agreed to listen to my story. Once I told that story, my career took off and I never looked back. That’s the power of holding a good story in your hand. I have been writing stories for 25 years and I have enjoyed excellent results thanks to a unqiue storytelling technique which helped me develop great memorable characters and engaging plots over and over again.

I am now sharing with young writers my simple story development technique and also many new tools that I have created during my journey of becoming one of the most successful writers in India. I am sharing all this knowledge with you all because I have a passion for teaching and I wish to pass on my original story development tools to the next generation of talented writers.

So, if you are really serious about building a writing career, do not miss this opportunity to join me on Story Craft (Advanced). It will be my pleasure to pass on my knowledge to a bright young talent like you.

You will find below a few videos where my students are sharing their experinces of this course.

Thanks for reading,

Virendra Shahaney
