Writing Courses For All

We have developed our creative writing courses to suit every stage of a writer’s journey. To participate, all you need is a love of writing and building stories! Our tutors provide practical feedback and guidance to help you on your way.

If you’re looking to get started or returning to writing after some time away, our Beginners Creative Writing Course explores the foundations of storytelling.

Or perhaps you’ve got an idea ready to go, but don’t know where to start? Our Begin Your Novel Course will give you the confidence to put pen to paper.

For young writers who can’t stop scribbling stories, explore our Creative Writing Course for Children and Creative Writing Course for Teenagers.

There’s no linear path when it comes to getting ideas on the page, or getting your first story published! Our online writing courses put you on track for believable characters, compelling stories and a writing plan you can stick to.

Latest Competitions

Our list of Writing Competitions is updated weekly by our team.
You’ll find a range of writing submissions to choose from, whatever your style, genre or preference.

Unsure Where To Start?

In the first instance, we recommend the Beginners Creative Writing Course if you have never completed an online writing course with feedback before. No writing experience is required, as you’ll learn how to produce ideas, create characters and start writing from scratch.
