Dear Writer – A Story of a Story

Dear Writer

We understand that the idea of writing a book can seem overwhelming. You are probably reading this because you want to learn more about the process. You might want to learn how to write a novel without getting stuck. You may have a life story you would like to share in the form of a memoir. You could have an idea you hope to turn into a non-fiction book. Whatever your dream, Writers Write can help you achieve your goals.

We know that there is a difference between having talent as a writer, and finishing and publishing a book. While nobody can teach you talent, you can learn how to make the most of the writing strengths you do have.

Writers Write will help you discover how to write a book. We draw on experience gathered from teaching this course for more than 10 years to show you that you can do it. We teach you to take an idea and nurture it into a story with a plot. We help you create characters that readers will remember. We encourage you to find the voices of your characters and to let them speak to each other and tell their stories. You learn how to show and not tell. You learn how to pace your story. You learn about query letters, synopses, and the new world of publishing. You do all of this in a safe, encouraging environment with plenty of practical exercises to back up the theory.

When you finish the course, you can continue your journey with us by following our daily writing posts at We encourage you to explore the writing resources already featured on this site. We add tips, and ideas, and interesting writing trivia every day. You can also subscribe to these updates.

We know how lonely writing is and we also know the only way forward is to write. With the backup from the online material and the invaluable lessons you learn on the Writers Write course, we know you will be able to follow your writing dream.
