"Discovering the Creative Writing Course has been one of the most satisfying landmarks in my life and certainly in my writing journey… [They] offer I believe an unequalled forum for prospective writers of all skill levels.  I am hooked."

Flash Fiction Challenge

This month, we’re seeking flash fiction set on a university campus. What small or big dramas unfold on the plaza, in the lecture halls, in the professor’s offices, in the library? You could write this in any genre you pleased: horror, romance, adventure... 

About Us

… this course has changed lives. We all sit with “that book” lying deep within us, though most of us remain too daunted, embarrassed and just plain inept to even get the first line down.                             Jo-Anne and Richard have (almost … they can’t write the whole book for you!) all the answers in their wonderful, warm, nurturing and “growing” writing courses.

I have gained so much knowledge, acquired many skills and been given a plethora of fine tools that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. I thank you so much for your time, your inspiration, your patience and your understanding. You are the best mentors I could wish for. Thank you for sharing your profound knowledge and experience with me.

It wasn’t until I was introduced to All About Writing that I began to believe in myself as a writer.  All About Writing weekend writing courses and international retreats have excelled in providing facilitative, creative and productive environments in which to develop one’s writing talent.  Critical input, insight, humour and encouragement are all part of the magic.
