Novel & Script Courses

Do you dream of writing your novel or screenplay but are overwhelmed by the enormity of the task, especially if you're working full-time?

Even if you don't have a clear story idea, this course provides a step-by-step process that breaks the writing of your first draft into manageable bite-sized chunks. 

  • This is without a doubt the best writing course in Sydney. I strongly recommend it to anyone with a story to tell and more to the point - to people unsure of what the story they want to write is.

  • No one in the world is doing what you guys do, combining the structural elements of story telling with the power and creativity of play. This process is fantastic.
    Academy Award winner Dr George Miller Happy Feet, Mad Max, Babe, The Witches of Eastwick, Lorenzo's Oil
  • Your classes taught me that everyone has a story inside them. You just need to learn the craft of writing in a nurturing environment like The Writer's Studio. It was an enlightening & liberating lesson.

The Writer's Studio, Bronte

Join us today and kick start your writing journey

Many people have a passionate desire to write fiction and long to see their books in print or their films on the big screen. However, the desire to write is only the beginning of the journey. Writing powerful stories, creating compelling characters and writing in a way that makes other people want to read what you've written doesn't just happen.

Making this work on the page is the art and craft of fiction writing and is a discipline that takes time to master. Just having the knowledge from a book or a lecture is rarely enough. You need a practical approach to structure and a step-by-step process to de-mystify the craft. The Writers' Studio gives you a pathway to realise your writing dreams.
