I started with a beginning and an end then changed the end, twice, got the middle and finally understood what plotting is all about and what a story arc truly is. Now I see holes and have an idea of how to fill them. Great attitude to teaching from WHQ crew.

WHAT MAKES WRITERS’ HQ SO AWESOME?

EVERYTHING YOU NEED

Hundreds of hours worth of creative writing courses covering plotting, editing, short stories, novel writing, productivity, characterisation, motivation, publishing, and getting through tricky times without losing your mojo.

WE'RE WRITERS TOO

We know what you’re dealing with – the frustrations, the joys, the heartache, the endless urge to procrastinate, the crying hysteria at Tumblr memes about punctuation. And we’re working on our stories right alongside you.

SUPPORT IS OUR M.O.

With thousands of WHQers all over the world, you can swap work for critique, swoon and flail and be caught by a other writers who Just Get It, 24 hours a day. Oh yeah. We put the mm in community, y’all

WE LOVE STORIES

No seriously. We love all of them, from sci fi to lit fic, from trashy beach reads to obscure experimental weirdness, from police procedurals to high fantasy. All stories are important and valued and just shut up and give them to us, ok? We demand MOAR STORIES.

NO NONSENSE

Writers’ HQ is about doing the work. We don’t waft around waiting for the muse or talking endlessly about writing without actually doing any. We show up at our desk time and time again and get. shit. done. (I mean, we also dick around making tea and eating biscuits, but you get the idea).

WE LOVE YOU

Running Writers’ HQ is a legit dream come true and we freakin’ adore all the people who make it so awesome (that’s you guys). We’re here for you, we’re rooting for you, we live and breathe this accidental behemoth. So come on in, the water’s fine.

WRITERS’ HQ WRITERS CAN BE FOUND IN THESE AMAZING PLACES

Who *are* you super cool luminescent interdimensional writer beings of joy and wonder?

Writers’ HQ is run by Sarah and Jo, two micro-sized writers who could never quite get the thing they needed from the huge array of (largely brilliant) writing courses available. So they (we? It’s us! Hello! We’re writing this in the third person!) set out to provide an inclusive, welcoming, supportive, step-by-step, hand-holding environment, away from tiresome literary snobbery and grammar pedantry, for the many writers out there who feel as though they don’t fit.

Between them (us?) they’ve (we’ve?) got four degrees in literature, Shakespeare and creative writing (and maths, but we don’t discuss that one. It was a dark time), a vast portfolio of writing in various disciplines and a smattering of awards, predominantly for writing but also one for winning a secondary school beauty contest, aged 11. Guess who that was.
