Mapping Your Story is useful for all writers struggling to develop an idea or stuck with an unwieldy story. Through an emphasis on key writing exercises, it offers writers guidance, building your story up from the premise and guiding you through developing and better understanding your story’s conflict, characters, theme, world, symbols, plot, scenes, and dialogue.

If you’re a pantser or discovery writer, this is an ideal course for helping you get to grips with your story. If you’re a plotter, you will learn a lot of useful techniques for shaping your story.

Over the past three years, A. R. Levett has offered an assortment of services to help writers, from Story Reviews and Editing services, to Workshops and Courses. As the demand for these services has increased, A. R. Levett has decided to separate his Story Mentoring services from his author website, turning them into his new business, The Story Mentor. Fear not, he will still offer the same professional services and great value, only from a brand-new website: https://www.thestorymentor.com.au/
What’s more, while he will still be offering the same services you love, such as Story Reviews (now Manuscript Assessments), Revision (now Substantive Editing), and Editing (now Copy Editing), he will be offering more services to give writers the very best support when it comes to their stories. These services include Story Mentoring, which is monthly meetings where he reviews and discusses your work and writing journey with you, Poetry Reviews, which will introduce manuscript assessments for poetry, and Ghost Writing, which offer you the ability to have A. R. Levett write your story for you.
What’s more, as The Story Mentor, A. R. Levett will be offering a wider range of workshops and courses to give you all the information you need to write that best-seller. And in the future, The Story Mentor plans to offer you even more new services, such as typesetting, transcription, proof reading, and even writing retreats to cater to all your writing needs.
Since workshop and courses are being run at the moment, it will take a little while before they migrate over to the new website, but the information will remain here until then and still continue to be valid until it is moved.
Be sure to visit the new website (https://www.thestorymentor.com.au/) and pick up a brochure from your local writing centre or library to see how The Story Mentor can help you.
Don’t forget: there’s only one week left until bookings for A. R. Levett’s Mapping Your Story 12-week course close. Don’t miss out on your last chance to attend the course for under half-price at $400 WAWU members/$500 general public.
A. R. Levett’s Mapping Your Story course is recommended for writers who have a completed early draft of their story that needs a lot of finessing before it fully captures your vision or for writers who have an idea and need to work it through the various development stages until they have a completed first draft.
During the course, A. R. Levett guides writers through writing exercise-led workshops on better understanding your story’s premise, conflict, characters, theme, story world, symbols, plot, scenes, and dialogue.
