Introduction to Authorship Workshop.


Authorship is a highly popular, and popularised career, with plenty of opportunities, obstacles, and overarching effects. This workshop on authorship teaches you not only how to write for personal or business purposes, but also gets you to master the entire process of writing, from idea generation and drafting, to clarifying the narrative process, making a point, and aligning your content with your audience. This workshop prepares you for a lifetime as a career author, focusing on getting your first book out, then your second, third, fourth and so on.

Authorship Workshop Overview.

Read any amazing books lately — you know, the ones you’ve written? If not, let’s start. Learn how to write masterpieces of fiction and non-fiction; unleash the next potential best seller by creating realising literary universes in which your audiences can find and, just as easily, lose themselves in. If you’ve got a story, it’s always worth telling — because there’s always someone, somewhere across the world who’s looking forward to reading it. Let’s get that out there to them.

Authorship Workshop Takeaways.

You will learn what authorship actually means, in a world where word processors are produced. You will use your ideas, aspirations, and passions to build universes for your readers, and create worlds from words that your audiences want to live in and belong to.

• Create worlds from words that matter to readers

• Bridge the gap between real and realistic

• Think in design-led perspectives to express intangible ideas

• Extend your inspiration to several genres

• Construct characters that come alive beyond the page

• Start a stable, profitable career as a full-time author

Authorship Workshop Abilities.

At the end of this workshop, you will be able to write original stories and texts that audiences want to read and belong to. You will be able to write for both fiction and non-fiction purposes, and build meaningful relationships between your characters and readers, and blur the lines between your world and the one we exist in. There are no conditions or pre-requisites for attending this workshop.

Life-Changer: This workshop gives you the skills to switch careers, start your own business, and/or boost your existing career.

Being the author of a book is a life changing experience with the potential to multiply ideas on a geometric scale. This experiential workshop will help you to achieve this scale. Owing to the nature of content discussed, this workshop accommodates a maximum of two participants per session, to minimise overexposure of private storylines and ideas from individual authors.

Customised: We understand that organisations and institutions have unique requirements and particular goals to accomplish. Each of our workshops can be re-designed to meet the particular objectives of your organisation. ‘Introduction to Authorship’ follows a standard curriculum for public workshops. Organisations intending to customise this workshop for their own private use, are able to pick from the workshop curriculum and topics, and adapt these to their own requirements.

Your Story Writing Career Begins at Quantico.


You decide where it goes. Owing to the nature of this field, and delivery of these two workshops, ‘Introduction to Publishing’ and ‘Introduction to Authorship’ are extremely popular workshops at Quantico, and spaces are almost always filled. The workshop size in Quantico Singapore’s facilities for both these courses are a maximum of 1:3. This is to ensure two quality matters:

First, as authors ourselves we know the amount of individual attention required to train and coach an aspiring author in his or her own unique ways and styles of expression.

Second, your ideas deserve maximum attention and maximum privacy. To reduce the potential for idea-stealing or IP-theft, we keep the number of participants to a maximum of three per instructor. These quality measures drive a much higher rate of success for these workshops and creates a safe, conducive environment for authors like you to express yourself and your ambitions confidently, and in confidence.
