Writing courses

Want to get started in creative writing or finish the writing project that you’ve been tinkering with?

Join one of my courses at the Writing Times.

These great value courses are designed for beginners and those with some experience to take at their own pace over either 6 or 12 months. Each course has one module a month, though you can work faster if you choose.

These are practical courses that will teach you both the writing skills and the self-coaching techniques you need to be a successful writer. You’ll get lots of personal attention and regular feedback.

There is an in-depth marked written assignment at the end of each module as well as lots of fun, challenging exercises along the way.

They’re all great value at £180 for a 6 month course and £360 for a 12 month course.
