Imagine you had your own personal writing coach.

Before or after work each day, your coach would give you a few fundamental points of writing practice, encourage you to write, provide a prompt to get you going, and give you full personal feedback.

The Creative Writing Day-by-Day coaching programme offers you the chance to form a writing discipline and develop your creativity. We provide a page of cogent notes to reconnect you with some essentials of writing, and a simple but challenging assignment – all designed to fit into a busy daily schedule.

Write whenever you have the chance: morning or evening, noon or early hours – we don’t care. Reading the notes and trying the assignment should take you no more than an hour. Every day, we’ll provide you with full feedback which is honest but kind, and guaranteed to develop your writing.

Creative Writing Day-by-Day will be available to you over two weeks.
