Hone your writing craft with a free webinar, writing workshop or course
July and August are jam-packed with an exciting array of events. They include free webinars on travel and creative writing, short workshops, a weekend travel blogging workshop and more. Have a look below, and see which one suits you best.
Free Travel Writing Webinar
Join Fred de Vries, award-winning journalist and non-fiction author, for a free travel writing webinar. Ask everything you’ve always wanted to know about any aspect of travel writing, from style, how to tackle a particular piece, ethical questions, how to incorporate narrative writing etc. Sign up here.
Free Creative Writing Webinar
This webinar will be specifically and wholly devoted to improving your creative writing skills. You’ll set the agenda: we’ll be responding to your questions and discussing issues important to you. Sign up for 22 July and/or 6 August.
Saturday Writing Workshop
Have a bit of virtual literary fun with All About Writing and a community of fellow writers when we present our Saturday Writing Workshop. It will be of equal benefit to more experienced writers wanting to augment their skills, and to those with no experience at all, who are looking for a place to start. Please note spots are limited.
Virtual Creative Writing Course
Do you doubt your ability to maintain the discipline for an online course? This way, you can learn in real-time from a tutor you can engage with and listen to. This is our famous face-to-face Creative Writing Course, offered with discussion, chat, and feedback – and notes to keep afterwards. You’ll learn all the skills you need to write a memoir, novel, creative non-fiction, or short story. All we can’t provide is the glass of wine. You’ll have to pour your own. On early-bird special until 16 July. Please note spots are limited.
Travel Writing Weekend
Who doesn’t want to run their own travel blog? Who wouldn’t like to decide what stories go up, and what they look like? Who doesn’t want to be his own boss? This is your chance. Over two days Fred de Vries will help you to create your very own first travel blog entry, complete with links, photographs and a neat layout. Please note spots are limited.
Introductory Power of Writing Course
The four-module introductory creative writing course will help you develop a more creative style by giving you the tools to enhance your writing voice. It will encourage active observational skills and introduce you to the concept of showing rather than telling. Full feedback on all assignments.
