Dirk - Ghent$34
Trusted teacher: Articles, books, columns, film scripts, press releases, radio spots, reviews, TV screenplays and simply copywriting with SEO: most of us have tried to squeeze one or more of these types of writing out of the (virtual) pen. Yet it turns out that it is not always easy to deliver good texts. One has great ideas, but cannot convert them into (digital or otherwise) ink; the other is creative, but makes too many spelling mistakes; and a third kind of person is a linguistic Nazi, but fails to come up with fluid, natural-feeling dialogues. The writing course of Badass Intensive Courses - an initiative of Badass PR - offers a solution. Below you can register for one or more lessons, after which you can follow our entire course. With your payment you can join any of our courses whenever you want. You can not only learn to act, but also sample our courses in debate and presentation techniques (our TV course), communication, singing, improvisation, 'physical acting', lie detection, hypnosis, directing, or writing! Of course, the following applies: the more you follow 1 particular course, the faster you progress. Our writing course Our course covers all possible texts and can be followed both privately and in a small group. Moreover, we mainly teach you what you are interested in. During our first meeting we will discuss your goals in detail, after which we will focus the entire course on what you exactly want and need. All ages and levels are welcome with us, so we welcome you with open arms even if you have no experience at all or especially need tutoring! About our coach To be sure: our head coach is at home in all markets. He wrote his first book, the science fantasy Ice, the Lost Planet, when he was 11. The novel was published three years later, which earned Dirk his city's cultural merit prize and items on almost all national TV and radio stations, as well as articles in every leading newspaper and a large number of magazines. Dirk later also became the very first Flemish author whose books he himself had pinned in English were published by American publishers: Fates Worse than Death: Hunter by Vajra Enterprises and Baour, Strands of Death by BlackWyrm Publishing. In between Dirk became a journalist. He wrote - or still writes - for 'fanzines', magazines, newspapers and websites such as Zita, Skynet, The Fighting Bard, Mandragon, Dreun, Mindview, Keys & Chords, Bello Magazine, De Zondag, Doorgelicht.be, MetalBorn, BeauSense Magazine, PDF'zines, GameJunks, Rpg.net, the Delta Gids, Cerberus, Cerberus Too, Cerberus Food & Lifestyle, Wellness Insight, Care Insight, Move On, Cult of Cool, Cult of Chic and Cult of Design. Thanks to his wide range of interests, he could go just about anywhere to write passionately about his favorite topics, but there is more. Dirk wrote hundreds of press releases for PR agency Oskaar and later for his own PR agency, Badass PR - mainly for films, television series, the hospitality industry and various charities. He also provides numerous newsletters and social media for his clients. Dirk has been a coach since he was twenty – when he was still studying psychology at the KUL – and has written several film and short film scripts as an acting teacher and screenwriter. Numerous radio spots have also rolled out of his brain. The most startling assignment, however, came when Modiphius Entertainment – the largest independent producer and distributor of role-playing games in the world – hired him to write the film script and audio play for Achtung! Cthulhu to write. They were so well received that he is currently reading the complete audio series of Achtung! Cthulhu is finishing. In addition, he is busy working on Iron Sky: The Roleplaying Game, which has been delayed considerably due to the fact that the second film was released much later than expected, production problems, the death of one of the two lead writers and the corona crisis. , but will be released next year at the largest role-playing convention in the world, Gen Con in Indianapolis. About you During our writing course, it goes without saying that it is not about us, but about you and your writing! Few things we enjoy as much as watching someone progress and live their passions. That is why we often go a step further after class and continue to support you, whatever texts you want to write!

Sietse - Leuven$86
Trusted teacher: ENGLISH BELOW Ik help je graag met het starten met schrijven en/of het verbeteren van je vaardigheden! Of je nu zoekt naar een coach die je begeleidt in en feedback geeft op blogs, columns, korte verhalen, fictie of non-fictie - ik stort me er graag op. Zelf ben ik voornamelijk werkzaam als schrijver van theaterteksten, maar ik heb ook ervaring met het schrijven van liedteksten, literaire vertalingen, essays etc.. Alle teksten benader ik dus vanuit een creatieve insteek en artistieke visie. Als theaterauteur houd ik me ook bezig met hoe een tekst klinkt - klinkt het niet prettig, dan kan hij vast beter geschreven worden. Als coach richt ik me vooral op het geven van feedback op de teksten die je schrijft en help ik je graag op weg met opdrachten om te beginnen met schrijven en/of om het gevreesde writersblock af te schudden. Vind je het fijner om meer stil te staan bij theorie rond het schrijven, dan help ik je daar natuurlijk ook graag bij. /// As a writer (mainly playwriting, but also songs, columns, literary translations and essays) I'm very interested in helping you either to start writing, or to better your writing. We'll work mostly by practicing and discussing your work. If you prefer to zoom in on theoretics, I'm happy to guide you in that as well. I'm a professional playwriter and dramaturg (and studied at LUCA School of Arts with Nico Boon, Freek Mariën and Nathan Vecht). I previously taught playwriting in different groups (CREA, Buitenkunst) and work as a scriptadvisor for professional theatre makers. Besides that, I often help people in writing resumes, papers and thesis papers.
