The last session of our 10-Month Novel and Script Live course is always very special

Everyone in the group is amazed and excited about how far their stories, those of their classmates and everyone in the group’s understanding of the process of storytelling has evolved over the 10 months.

What participants wrote after our final class

“I've spent a lot of time doing writing and creative writing subjects at different uni's that all reckon they've got brilliant courses for whatever reason, but they've got nothing on The Writers' Studio. I really feel as though I've improved beyond what I thought I could do. The resources you provide, the knowledge you impart, the time you put in and the attention you're willing to give every class member is unique, rare and wonderful, and I'm so glad I found it.”

He's a real master of the craft and I felt very fortunate to be able to ask him all those questions that have been bubbling away in my unconscious for years. And I'm pleased to say he seemed like a very decent bloke.

We love hearing from writers who have taken our courses to see where their creative journeys have taken them.

We've recently received updates from several former participants and wanted to share their good news.

Writing a novel or screenplay is an art and a craft that requires writers to go outside their comfort zone and understand the challenges of the creative process.

To fully harness your creative potential, it is essential to grasp the subtleties of the creative process and understand how at first, elements of the craft of writing and storytelling can often feel counter-intuitive or counter-instinctive.

In fiction, particularly commercial fiction, the most important thing is to keep your reader turning the pages.
