Rachel Dove

Studied the Comprehensive Creative Writing course and the Writing for Children course

Rachel DoveSince winning the Writers Bureau Writer of the Year Award in 2016, after coming first in the Prima/Mills & Boon Flirty Fiction competition the year before, I have been so busy!

I recently completed my Writing for Children course, having completed the Comprehensive Writing course before this, and I have just finished my eighth romantic fiction book, which is to be published by Harper Collins in 2019. I have had work published in newspapers and magazines in the UK and abroad, been on BBC Radio shows, and had the opportunity to meet many wonderful authors and publishers at some amazing parties and events! I still feel like I am perfecting my craft, so I decided to continue studying Creative Writing, having been bitten by the bug. I am now in my second year of a Creative Writing MA, and my previous courses really did prepare me well for submitting professionally and successfully to publishers, editors and tutors alike.

I am always grateful that I took the time and effort to do the writing courses with The Writers Bureau, and even now, they are still a great source of support and help. I recently signed with Lina from The Kate Nash Agency, and I can't wait to see what 2019 and beyond will bring! I cannot recommend them enough. I now get to raise my family and continue to fulfil my dreams. It's the best of both worlds.

Rachel's eighth book, The Fire House on Honeysuckle Street, was released on 1st May 2019.

Annemarie Munro Writers Bureau's Student of the Year 2022

"I have seen my writing journey as an adventure: What can I write? What am I best at? What new aspects of writing can I discover and contribute towards? I have welcomed the wide range of modules covering different types of writing, challenging me to try new aspects in style and content, pushing me gently outside my comfort zone with encouragement.

"I signed up for the course in December 2020 as a Christmas present to myself and I started the first module in January 2021. I have had eight pieces published: three paid earning £1080 and a star letter where I won a £250 hotel voucher."
