Fantastic Course

Thoroughly excellent course. A guided tour of the first draft you thought you knew, with myriad exercises to ensure you end up knowing it better. Help to recognise its strengths, and strategies to deal with its weaknesses. Advice, support, and plain good sense. A variety of approaches, to suit different kinds of writers. By the end of the course, I was raring to go, and what’s more, I knew what I had to do to make my draft into the best book it could be.

We’re writers too.
We understand how it works.

We’ve been helping writers love their writing since 2012

Writers’ HQ is run by Sarah and Jo and a badass team of hand-baked writers who believe that all stories – your stories – are important and need to be told.
