Advanced fiction writers is a 12-week course for writers of all abilities. It is specifically aimed at early-to-mid career writers who are already have a writing schedule in place but need help, inspiration or advice to develop their writing.

This course offers writers guidance, exercises and methods to progress your writing. You may be in the throes of writing a novel, revising short stories or just starting out. If you feel that you could benefit from understanding how and why good writing works this course might be a good fit.

As this is an intensive course, which will require you to read and produce writing , you need to commit at least 6-8 hours each week to completing set tasks. If you’ve already taken a writing class, done an MA, or have published a novel this course isn’t for you. There are plenty of places you can find support.

I can’t promise you that you’ll have a completed manuscript by the end of the course. What I can offer you is a supportive, nurturing environment to help you develop your own ideas and originality.

There are 16 spaces on this course. Places are free and you can join us from any part of the world. All we ask is you have regular access to an internet connection. You’ll need to commit around 6-8 hours to this each week, so please don’t apply if you are unable to do this.

What you will learn:

  • writing techniques and methods
  • a clear guide to improve and revise work
  • tips and tools to help you develop your writing skills
