WRITE WHAT YOU KNOW
(even if you think you know nothing, Jon Snow)

Ahhh 'write what you know' - that old hackneyed chestnut, right? For most of us, 'what we know' is actually pretty dull and boring, but that's not the point. The point is, we're all frickin' human. We all feel things (ugh, feelings). We all know stuff that other people don't know. We've all experienced the world, with all its ups and downs and sideways strangeness. And the secret to good writing is translating all that innate human-y knowledge into honest, realistic fiction.

 

Join us for a month of motivation emails full of pep, exercises, prompts and guidance on turning 'what you know' into 'what you don't know'.

FARQUAR

Who are you? 

 

Writers’ HQ runs online creative writing courses for badass writers with no time or money, covering everything from plotting to editing, from short story writing to publishing.

What's in your newsletter?

 

All kinds of wonderous things, including but not limited to: special offers, the latest super cool blogs, John-Williams-score-rousing pep, gifs, the occasional haiku and a reasonable quantity of swearing.

 

I don't like gin, swearing, or jokes forged from the depths of the Internet. 

 

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. 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).

Where are the T&Cs that I'll never read?

 

They're here. We store your data in a handful of places - Mailchimp primarily, and if you sign up to our courses then we use Zapier and Thinkific. All are GDPR compliant. You can unsubscribe at any time.
