With this series of 6 online MasterClasses, one a week, I’ll be your personal mentor. No longer will you have to go it alone.
The live MasterClasses will give you invaluable expert guidance and on-the-spot coaching to inform and inspire you. Plus, you’ll enjoy the camaraderie of a community of supportive writers.
Imagine this. Completing your book and celebrating, because you know it’s really good – the kind of book that can attract a top agent and win an offer from a major publisher.
There’s no satisfaction like that!
The Novel Writing MasterClass Series is open to writers at all levels:
- If you’re at the beginning of your writing journey, you’ll find inspiration and a clear path forward.
- If you’re an emerging writer, you’ll discover empowering skills to move up from “writer” to “author.”
- If you’re a seasoned writer, you’ll learn how to boost your writing to the level of the “bestsellers.”
- You’ll finish the 6 MasterClasses with a deep understanding of how to develop, focus, and enrich your story— and the confidence to complete it.

I’ve helped many writers along this exciting path. Here are some of them.
“I took Barbara Kyle’s excellent Master Class when I was stuck with my first novel. I’ve recently finished my fourth book, and Barbara’s wise words constantly guide my way.”
“Barbara Kyle was clear, down-to-earth, inspiring, and encouraging. As well, Barbara is the queen of plot, and I am forever grateful for her wise, pragmatic, and gracious mentoring.”
“I had almost given up on this novel. Then I took one of your Master Classes and that gave me the courage to go on. You provided invaluable feedback.”
“Barbara, what a tremendously positive impact you had on shaping the final version of this story. The honest and timely ‘tough love’ was absolutely indispensable. Can’t thank you enough.”
“Thank you, Barbara. The insights and advice you offered helped me add depth and human complexity to the story that kicked it up two or three notches. Your inspiration made a huge difference.”
“Barbara, your insights were incredibly helpful. Plus, you were able to address my concerns and questions. A fabulously productive investment. Thank you!”
The Novel Writing MasterClass Series gives you the best of both worlds:
Live expert guidance from me, plus the camaraderie of a supportive online writing community.
Everyone who enrolls in the Novel Writing MasterClasses receives…
6 Live Online MasterClasses
In each MasterClass, held Tuesdays at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time, I cover the key elements that create a compelling novel — and that all agents and publishers look for in a manuscript. These include maximizing the power of Deep Character, crafting winning story structure, writing dynamic dialogue, creating turning points, mastering POV (point-of-view), and developing your unique prose “voice”. Plus, I’ll give you essential tips about getting published. Each class provides lots of time for on-the-spot coaching with Q&A.
Unlimited lifetime access to all the recorded MasterClasses
If you have to miss any of the MasterClasses, or if you just want to replay them as a refresher, your unlimited access to the recorded sessions guarantees that you can watch the videos anytime that’s best for you, and as often as you like.
Invaluable information about getting published
To prepare you for submitting your book to literary agents and set you on the path to publication.

Where you can share your writing journey and enjoy camaraderie with your fellow writers in my programs. I’m there every day to answer your questions and provide ongoing support, even after the MasterClasses end. Joining the group is totally optional: participate as often as you like, occasionally, or not at all – it’s up to you.
Priority opportunity for private mentoring
You’ll get priority scheduling if you’d like to go to the next level and purchase private mentoring with me. You’ll jump to the front of the line for Right Start Mentoring to help you get your book into top shape, either during the MasterClass Series or any time after the series ends.
That Yes, you can do this!

- You struggle to find time to write while juggling work and family commitments, so you’d benefit from a focused program to keep you on track

- You want to work with a pro to identify and improve possible weaknesses in your writing
- You feel energized by connecting with others who are as serious about writing as you are
