Have you always wanted to write – a novel, a short story, a memoir – but never got beyond the first few pages?

You might have written the book you’ve always dreamed about, but know there’s something about it that doesn’t feel quite right…

Perhaps you feel daunted, nervous to take the first step, scared of failure?

How will you get past your writer’s block?

What if you just want to exercise your creativity in a safe space?

What do you need to write that book you’ve always dreamed of?

Encouragement? Insight into the sorts of techniques that turn a humdrum story into an electrifying narrative?

Our Creative Writing Course will give you all this and much more. The course is designed to provide you with the skills and tools every writer needs to tell your own story. All About Writing will help you realise your dreams.
