We’re a collective of avid writers and creatives.

Some of us are experts, others started this week. It’s not important where you’re at professionally; if you’re passionate about writing, we’d love you to join us.

Learning as a group means we all get the best of each other before heading back into our own heads. Maybe you’re from the same tiny town someone’s basing their story? Maybe they’ve got a reference that’ll make your first chapter brilliant?

Writing has been seen as a solitary pursuit for too long. Not anymore.

Peer reviews

There’s no getting away from regular feedback on your work. And that’s a great thing. You’ll push each other.

Moral support

The antidote to overthinking: other writers on hand for a quick debrief or stress-test. (Check whether your jokes are funny and your references are on point.)

Contacts for after

You’re still part of our community after your course finishes. Loads of our writers stay in touch and keep writing together.
