Meet our experts

All our teachers are professional writers who know the industry inside out.

Between them they’ve got novels, scripts, screenplays and plenty of critical acclaim. Why not show them your work?

Our Roles

Here's who you'll be working with

Course Director

Your course director curates what you’ll be learning and oversees the project. Some of our tutors are also course directors themselves.

Tutor

Your tutor is your main teacher. They’ll give you reading lists, set you tasks, and regularly read your writing.

Moderator

We’ve also got extra team members on hand to sit in during workshops and be available for any burning questions you might have.
