WHAT AM I SIGNING UP FOR?

Let us help you get writing, keep writing, and reach your writing goals.

WHY AM I SIGNING
UP?

There’s no one-size-fits-all writing advice. We’re all different. We all have different routines, motivations, needs and limits. Comparing yourself to some uber-prolific writer who gets up at 4am every day and bashes out 10K before breakfast isn’t helpful. So find your own way, give your writing habit a vigorous shakedown, and finish the course with a regular, sustainable writing practice.

WHO AM I SIGNING UP FOR?

Writers’ HQ helps writers to tell their stories, and to tell them really freakin’ well.

We run online creative writing courses and real life retreats for badass writers with no time or money. You can find out more here www.writershq.co.uk

AS SEEN ON (OR AT):

SOME QUESTIONS. SOME ANSWERS.

“Writers’ HQ gave me the confidence to write. I’ve had short stories, poems, and a children’s book published. Through hundreds of tiny steps and stumbles, each one supported by the Writers HQ community, I am finally happy to call myself a writer. It has become my job.”


Lisa Fransson
author, Älgpappan

“The endless enthusiasm and encouragement of Sarah and Jo has worked magic. My novella-in-flash was published by Ellipsis and won Best Novella in the Saboteur Awards 2019 and I’m now represented by super-agent Sheila Crowley at Curtis Brown.”


Stephanie Hutton
author, Three Sisters of Stone

“With Jo and Sarah’s help I put together a query letter that got me four full requests from the slush-pile, three offers of representation and ultimately, an agent. There’s a reason I mention WHQ in the acknowledgements of my debut novel – they are awesome.”


Emma Read
