IN FALL 2020, WE LAUNCHED A NEW AUTHOR'S COURSE WITH ALEXEY TARASOV. THE NAME OF THE CREATIVE WRITING COURSE IMPLIES THAT WRITING TEXTS IS A FORM OF CREATIVITY. WRITING IS A CRAFT TO LEARN, EASY TO LOVE AND EVEN EASIER TO HATE.

In the course, we will learn the techniques of journalism – writing news, short texts, discuss why some stories are read avidly, while others are thrown, having turned a few pages. Let’s discuss what style is and what it consists of; from which screws and springs a mechanism is formed that moves the plot forward.

We’ll talk about where stories come from, how a good story differs from a bad one, how dialogues and scripts are written.

The learning process can be viewed in our video gallery, you can ask all questions personally by phone and email.
