Recommended short courses for creative writing
Pay $140 for a series of 12 minute lessons from well-known writers like Margaret Atwood Joyce Carol Oates and James Patterson. Watch them in your own time, whenever you need inspiration.
Various short courses to choose from. Sometimes they are a one day seminar (on a weekend) sometimes they are a series of two or three weeknights: very manageable in terms of time commitment. They are always run by really accomplished Australian writers.
If you’re just feeling stuck in a rut, these can be a great kick-starter. (All of these Aussie places listed are where all our great writers are hanging out, supplementing their incomes. It’s always worth being around great writers.)
