"It is an understatement to say I learnt more about writing from the workshops than I did in three years studying (creative writing) at university.” Ali Gripper, former Fairfax journalist and author of The Barefoot Surgeon
Bonus Online Component and the Writers' Board in our Live Course:
In addition to the face-to-face classes at the Bronte Studio, you will receive structured at-home daily exercises designed to put the tools and techniques you learn into practice.
Our unique Writers' Board is designed to keep the tools and techniques you learn in class alive during the week while writing at home.
As well as receiving feedback from your tutor, you will interact with your fellow writers by learning to give and receive targeted feedback.
How Much Time is Required Daily?
The time required for actual writing per day starts off with as little as 10-15 minutes. It is by doing a little every day and forming a writing habit that you become a writer. You experience the pleasure of accessing your creativity on a regular basis and working towards making your writing dreams a reality.
The whole process of writing your at home exercises, typing them up and then posting them onto the Writers' Board and giving feedback takes around 45 minutes a day, four to five times a week. You can do more or less depending on how much time you have available.
