WRITE A TINY NOVEL

A free online creative writing course from Writers’ HQ – plus daily reminder emails and an invitation to join our kick-ass writing community for support from writers all over the world!

IT'S TIME TO GET YOUR STORY WRITTEN

AND WE'RE GOING TO SHOW YOU HOW

Writing a novel involves a lot of procrastinating, but at some point you have to stop fucking about and start writing.

That time is now.

Join us for a kickass five-day writing challenge, in which we’ll show you how to outline the first major points of your novel, how to motivate yourself to show up every single day, and how to get those ideas out of your head and on to paper.

You’ll walk away with something story-shaped; a tangible tale you can hold in your hand that looks remarkably like a very tiny novel.
