Writers Write ONLINE

What materials do I need?

  1. You need access to a computer, the internet, and if you decide to print the workbook, a printer.
  2. We encourage you to write by hand as much as possible, especially when you are doing prompts, exploring, or brainstorming characters and scenarios.
  3. But, you are welcome to use any tool or material that you are comfortable with. No two methods, or two writers, are the same.

How do I complete the exercises?

  1. Either download the course and work off a printed version OR work from the online modules on the website.
  2. Some will be free writing exercises; others will be more structured with specific instructions.
  3. For the free writing exercises, simply put pen to paper and see where it takes you.
  4. For the more structured exercises, try to follow the instructions. But then again, it’s creative writing and there are no rules.

What you’ve said about the course:

Tracy Tamasi:

“I’m LOVING it. The exercises and information have helped me gain clarity in terms of how to organise when writing and also how the elements should work together.”

Laura Kirsten:

“I started my Writers Write Online Course in April this year. The course opened up a whole new world for me.

I remember being fascinated, and a little shocked, by the writing techniques in the notes I received. I had a picture in my head that famous writers just sat down and wrote their best-selling novels, relying on talent alone. The workbook exercises taught me so much and made me think outside the box. I have been using them for various scenes and they work every time.

My online sessions were so inspiring. I was nervous every time I sent a sample of writing, but the facilitator soon put me at ease with her calm and positive feedback. Our sessions were full of fun and laughter and I learnt more than I ever expected. One very important lesson that I learnt from her is that ‘readers want to know more…’  I started trusting myself and my own writing. I will always be grateful for this.

I recommend this valuable course to writers and aspiring writers everywhere. You are guaranteed to learn something new.

Thank you, this was a life-changing experience.”

Fran Bezuidenhout:

“I have to say the course really exceeded my expectations. You did a fantastic job putting it together and I learned a lot.”

Beth Stillman Blaha:

“If you have considered, however briefly, throwing your hat in the ring, I would strongly encourage you to do so.  The materials and the coaching sessions are incredible.

The thoughtful, positive and encouraging approach to teaching brought a nebulous idea I had had in my mind for years into a manuscript over the course of eight months.  I looked forward to my sessions which filled my mind with new directions and ideas.”
