Who is this course for?

This course serves as a beacon for writers who find themselves in need of some creative direction. You might be starting out fresh or stuck on a story idea. Together, we'll develop your idea into a short story in just one day.

Clear the fog on your creative writing with this results-driven, 1-day course. Covering the basics with bonus prompts and guides, we'll transition your story from idea to paper in just one day.

You'll learn:

  • How to uncover and develop your story idea;

  • How to define the narrative voice your story will take;

  • How to identify the genre that your story sits within (or outside of) and to develop the characters who will drive your story forward;

  • You’ll gain insights into plot and structure and the traits that contribute to them;

  • You’ll refine your use of dialogue in storytelling to further drive your story plot.

Hi there, my name is Xeni, I’m a writing coach, workshop host, film and publishing marketer, and storyteller.


After over a decade’s experience working for creative powerhouses like Universal Pictures, Warners Brothers, and Pan Macmillan, I wanted to build a community for writers to work on their craft without the overwhelm; that pain point where you have an idea and are making progress… but then pause, let fear or doubt creep in and the writing stalls. 

Through A Writer's Lighthouse, I aim to clear the fog on your writer's journey and steer you on the narrative path to completion.
