This March, we’ve got something on offer for every kind of writer, and every kind of writing project. The month kicks off with our Power of Writing Course, specially designed for beginner writers. Don’t miss our flagship Creative Writing Course, or our Saturday Memoir Writing Workshop, with guest teacher Joanne Hichens.

A four-part introduction to the essentials of creative writing. The introductory Power of Writing course takes you to the heart of creative writing.
Over just four online modules, the course introduces you to a handful of creative writing’s essential skills.
Comprehensive feedback helps consolidate your mastery of these skills. Start a creative writing adventure today and learn the basics of dramatic writing. Cost: £45 / ZAR750
The Logic of Story creative writing coaching programme will show you how a strong story is the basis for whatever you write.
You’ll gain an understanding of how story works, which in turn will give you the confidence of knowing exactly where you’re going.
An empty screen can produce such anxiety that your blood pressure can rise alarmingly, say scientists. So how do you edge past the anxiety? How can you turn the vague desire to write into a concrete writing project?
We are constantly approached by people with the urge to write – but no idea how to translate that desire into practice.
“I write in a journal every day, but how do I go from there into writing more seriously?” Or, “I want to write a book, but I have no idea where to start or what to do first.”
If this sounds anything like you, join our free webinar, where we’ll try to find at least some of the answers, and will hopefully get you filling those blank pages with the start of a novel, a memoir, or a short story.
Join All About Writing’s Jo-Anne Richards and Joanne Hichens, author of recently released memoir, Death and the After Parties, for a virtual Saturday Writing Workshop focusing on memoir writing. 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. Cost: £20 / ZAR325
