Welcome to the Writers' Studio


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.

  • Pathway to Publishing Writers

    This page showcases some of the excellent writing developed in our Novel & Script courses. Writing a compelling story that has readers wanting to know what happens next while taking a character on an emotional and spiritual journey of change, doesn’t happen by accident. These novels and short stories are inspiring examples of what a combination of hard work, discipline and a willingness to follow the process can produce. After signing a two book deal with Forge Books in New York, Alex Gilly said, "By sticking with my story and to the principles I learned at the Writers' Studio, and by getting lucky, I've realised a life-long ambition."
