What you’ve said about the course:

Laura Kirsten:

“I started my Writers Write Online Course in April this year. The course opened up a whole new world for me.

I remember being fascinated, and a little shocked, by the writing techniques in the notes I received. I had a picture in my head that famous writers just sat down and wrote their best-selling novels, relying on talent alone. The workbook exercises taught me so much and made me think outside the box. I have been using them for various scenes and they work every time.

My online sessions were so inspiring. I was nervous every time I sent a sample of writing, but the facilitator soon put me at ease with her calm and positive feedback. Our sessions were full of fun and laughter and I learnt more than I ever expected. One very important lesson that I learnt from her is that ‘readers want to know more…’  I started trusting myself and my own writing. I will always be grateful for this.

I recommend this valuable course to writers and aspiring writers everywhere. You are guaranteed to learn something new.

Thank you, this was a life-changing experience.”

Beth Stillman Blaha:

“If you have considered, however briefly, throwing your hat in the ring, I would strongly encourage you to do so.  The materials and the coaching sessions are incredible.

The thoughtful, positive and encouraging approach to teaching brought a nebulous idea I had had in my mind for years into a manuscript over the course of eight months.  I looked forward to my sessions which filled my mind with new directions and ideas.”

Coaching Sessions

* You can use these sessions to ask questions and discuss your writing. You can submit a piece of writing of no longer than 500 words for each session. These sessions must be taken within six months of signing up for the course.
