Fiction writing is one of the most exciting adventures an author can take. If you have a story you’re aching to tell, this course is for you.

Fiction Jumpstart will show you how to keep your reader glued to your novel from start to finish (even if you’ve failed before).

Jerry will help you master the fundamentals of powerful storytelling. Equipped with this knowledge, you’ll be empowered to finish your novel.

Are you struggling to do justice to your BIG story idea?

Let’s face it—great novels aren’t written by accident.

They’re crafted by writers who understand the powerful dance between plot, character, setting, dialogue, tension, and many other crucial elements.

Through your writing you have the power to inspire, encourage, and offer hope to countless readers—and you’re likely brimming with ideas.

But there’s a problem.

You can’t seem to get that powerful story from your mind to the computer screen. Your writing always seems to fall flat, no matter what you try.

You don’t know what to do.

You feel confused.

Soon you lose focus. Then momentum. Then excitement.

Before long, a month goes by. Then two. Then six.

Once your motivation is gone, you never get around to finishing that book. Most painful isn’t the disappointment of an unfinished manuscript…it’s the death of your writing dream.

What do you say we resurrect your unique story and message?

It’s time to make your move to finally finish that novel.

Here’s the good news:

With the right knowledge and the right plan, you can write a story that inspires, entertains, and offers hope to people.

And if you’re willing to learn how from someone who’s been there many times before, who knows the roads and knows the shortcuts, you can accomplish your goal SO much faster.

In this course, 21-time New York Times bestselling author Jerry Jenkins reveals his proven plan for writing fiction that grabs your reader by the throat…and never lets go.

You’ll get training, assignments, and resources to help you write a novel that will have friends, family, and strangers alike saying, “I just couldn’t put it down!”

You’ll also get lifetime access to a community of passionate and helpful fiction writers like yourself!


This is for all those writers who want to write a novel, but have never done it before, and prefer to have a guide to show them the way. Or for those who’ve written a novel, but want to try a new way.

Fiction Jumpstart, ($149) was designed by Jerry Jenkins, someone who knows a thing or two about writing fiction. He created this course as a way to make this kind of top-level knowledge available to anyone with a message to share. He’s really passionate about equipping people who want to help others, but might not know exactly how, and allowing them to make a bigger impact with their story. That’s been his motivation. He believes if you’re writing a novel, you have a message to share. (I totally agree!)
