Free Creative Writing Workshops

The course is run over four weeks and each 40-minute Zoom workshop provides an overview of a different aspect of creative writing. You'll do short writing activities during the class and by the end of the course, you'll have a good idea of what you'd like to learn in the advanced workshops.

Reviews

This online creative writing course is so awesome! I highly recommend it! - Marlene Hoenig, June 2020

“I love to write but find that I don’t always manage to make time to do it. Your workshops offer the time and space and I find being around people who also enjoy writing inspires me to write more. I especially like it when we all share what we have written and can get feedback from like-minded people.”  - Mary 

 

"Thanks for everything. I found it extremely useful." - Rina

“This workshop has helped me to get disciplined in my writing and to actually start finishing the children's stories that I have always wanted to write.”  - Lindie

 

Thank you so much Brenda. Your insights and perspective are really helpful and will definitely add a different dimension to my writing.

"Just a short and BIG thank you for the one-day workshop on Saturday!  I thoroughly enjoyed it – from the basic principles, to the quotes, to the exercises we had to do and of course the delicious coffee and food.  I felt inspired and energised." - Dave Ramsay
