Come join Story PenPal, get brilliant new writing ideas, live feedback on your stories, plus a chance to win $50 cash in our free-entry flash fiction contest...

and sample us without charge!

Every week, you get stimulating emails packed with...

brilliant ‘how to’ writing tips and strategies to enhance your stories.

Terse, to the point. Ideas you can grasp in a moment that actually work.

For example, how to Create a Winning Plot in a Moment ... Open a Story with Flair ... Add Power to Dialogue ... Build ‘Scenic Depth’ into a Story ... Choose the Right ‘Voice’ ... Maintain Pace ... Close a Story with Panache ... Move Between Scenes Effectively ... Add Depth and Feeling to the Portrayal of Characters ... plus every other technique you will require to get your stories into publication.
You can sample the quality - and originality - of those ideas for yourself on a four-week trial, without charge.
"I’ve been using techniques you’ve taught us and, as a result, have gained rave reviews from my critique group and mentor. Your suggestions were so powerful, I wanted to pack up my whole [novel] and send it to you. So thank you, again and again!" Lori Norman, Palm Beach, Florida.
What's more, our secure private Forum gives you helpful feedback on your work in progress.

You get one-to-one help with your stories, from your fellow writers and myself. The Forum is a safe place. It's guaranteed free from trolls, children and adverts. Ever wanted to have a writing group on your own doorstep? Full of friends and always ready to call on? That's Story PenPal.

Why can you be sure this program will help you?

All its ideas come from a PhD in Creative Writing who has 42 years of highly successful publishing experience and is also a top-rated Amazon author.

Who is that splendid person? This is no time to be modest! I’m Dr John Yeoman. I hold one of the world’s few PhDs in Creative Writing. No other writing program on the web can offer you the depth of expertise that you'll find in my weekly emails.

Since 2009, I’ve been the principal judge at the Writers’ Village International Short Fiction Award, one of the world’s biggest short story contests. (You'll find 13,300 references to it at Google.) I've personally critiqued over 6000 stories. I've coached more than 2000 debut writers to publishing success. Above all, my novels have gained more than 100 top-star reviews at Amazon.

"I am thrilled to announce that I have won two major awards in the Rockingham Short Fiction awards. I took your advice and you can see the results." Sonia Bellhouse, Armadale, W. Australia.
You’re in safe hands.
