After hanging around on the WHQ Freeloaders page and completing the free courses, I was so convinced by the improvements to my writing – and amused by the emails! – I signed up for three months… I’m still here months later! I’ve learnt so much, from courses like Plotstormers and First Draft, and from fellow WHQers, I would rather give up cake and chocolate than let my membership lapse! Love you WHQ!

Here’s to Writers’ HQ for encouraging us to take ourselves seriously as writers whilst still enabling us to have fun while we do it.
WHAT MAKES WRITERS’ HQ
everything you need
The incredible Writers’ HQ community offers 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.
we're writers too
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.
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.
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.
They (we!) have been helping writers achieve their goals since 2012, and Writers’ HQ has grown into the most inclusive, welcome, supportive, step-by-step, hand-holding community, away from tiresome literary snobbery and grammar pedantry, for the many writers out there who feel as though they don’t fit.
