14 Days To A solid writing habit
get writing. stay writing

This course was amazing and literally does what it says on the tin, in helping you form a solid writing habit. I’ts been great for me to get back into my writing. Not only has it helped me to actually write, it’s given me confidence and self belief which i was massively lacking previous to the course. I am now going to look into the other courses and work on my novel. Thanks for a great kick up the bum!

Join our next free creative writing course
Sometimes the toughest part about writing is finding the time and space to do it.

Our online productivity butt-kick will show you how to magic writing time from nowhere, how to set realistic and sustainable goals, and offer techniques for prioritising so that it always gets done. By the end of the course you’ll have an achievable, regular and confident writing practice.

Maybe you’re struggling to find the time to write around work and family and the general goings on of life. Maybe you feel like you don’t know where to start. Maybe you’re quietly worried that you won’t be as good as you hope you’ll be.

14 Days To A Solid Writing Habit will guide you step-by-step through and over your hurdles while simultaneously getting your bum on the seat to write – and writing regularly.

Give us two weeks and we’ll have you raring to go.

I don’t like tea, swearing or memes

Yeah no we’re probably not for you then. Our approach isn’t for everyone (your first clue is in our logo). We swear more than is ‘ladylike’ and use gifs when we could use our words. But, eh, fuck it. We don’t believe that linguistic purity or literary snobbery does anyone any favours.

If we’re not a match for you, thanks for giving us a go and good luck with your writing – we wish you every success. Please don’t sign up and then email us with how offended you are because that’s a silly waste of everyone’s time.

But if, like us, you’ve never found your rightful place in the writing world and think WHQ could be just the ticket – welcome home, come in, grab a cuppa, we’ve been waiting for you (in a totally non sinister way ofc).
