Kryssie Fortune

"I kept seeing Writers Bureau adverts, and finally my husband, stepped in and enrolled me. Thank god he did. I love to write, but without the guidance on how to write for markets I think I’d have sunk without a trace.

"I saw a request for stories on the Loose ID website and worked out one that fit their guidelines. I wrote it, and they bought it. I didn’t know I was a screamer, but when I opened the email accepting my novella, I screamed so loud my husband though someone was attacking me.

"I’ve not made my fortune, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the size of the cheques. Amazon’s not everything but I was giddy when a couple of my books appeared in the top 20,000 in the USA. Given these listing run into millions, I found that amazing"

About Your Course...

The Comprehensive Creative Writing Course is a complete home-study course covering almost every aspect of writing for profit. It has been created by professional writers who, for many years, have earned their living from writing.

Your course is divided into 27 information-packed study modules. These cover all the main areas of freelance writing, apart from poetry (for which we have a separate course). Just look at all the different subjects you will learn about...

  • Readers' letters and fillers
  • Articles for women's and men's magazines
  • General interest articles
  • Travel writing
  • Writing for the trade press
  • Writing for children's and teenage publications
  • How to write humorous articles
  • Religious and inspirational writing
  • Writing reviews
  • Journalism (and photo-journalism)
  • Non-fiction books
  • Novel writing
  • Writing specialist fiction
  • Writing the short story
  • Short stories for radio
  • Writing radio drama
  • Writing for television
  • Writing for the stage

The Comprehensive Creative Writing Course will guide you through all these fascinating areas, in the in-depth study modules and twenty varied and interesting practical assignments. If you're still not sure where your true writing passions – and talents – lie, it's the ideal way to find out!

But even if you already have a particular writing interest, as many of our students will confirm, the course can open your eyes to other areas of writing you might not previously have considered but may discover you have a real aptitude for!

Perhaps you'll end up a best-selling children's author, for example, or a jet-setting travel writer, like our student below...


Cindy-Lou Dale"The most exciting result this year has to be regular publication of my reviews on Silver Travel Advisor website. Every time we go anywhere, I write a review, and these are regularly posted as ‘Review of the Week'.

"As a result of my reviews I am now officially one of their Travel Writer/Advisors. Although there is no salary, I am their first choice of reviewer when they are offered trade visits.

"In June I went to Hungary for a week alongside representatives from Thomas Cooke, Kuoni, BA Holidays and the Flight Shop. We had a fantastic time in four and five star accommodation, lots of superb restaurant meals plus visits to attractions all around the eastern side of Hungary.

"In September, I was asked to go to Thessaloniki as the Silver Traveller representative, again all expenses paid. This time, it was just arranged for me and my husband to visit rather than a group so it was very exciting.

"As a result of these visits, I have been to the World Travel Market trade show in London recently as a Travel Journalist and I am due to travel to the Algarve before Christmas  as a guest of a hotel chain there. Following the trade show, I also fully expect to be included in future trade trips, including the Nordic countries and Japan and walking in Sardinia. It's a hard life!

  • And, crucially, you will learn how to SELL your writing.We reveal how to get editors and publishers to look favourably on your work, and give practical suggestions that can make all the difference between rejection and success.

And there's another very important ingredient to your course, helping ensure the success of your studies...


Your Personal Tutor

As a Writers Bureau student, you're never left alone to flounder. Every student has their own personal tutor allocated, based on their writing interests and aspirations.

All our tutors are currently published writers, so they have a good working knowledge of the markets. From their own direct experience, they can help you to start writing, find ideas, and produce the sort of work that really sells in the current marketplace.

Your tutor will...

  • Give you an honest opinion about your work, advising, as needed, on style, subject matter, presentation, grammar and anything else that matters.

  • Tell you how to improve your work – if improvement is necessary – and how to avoid the common errors and mistakes that so many beginners make.

  • Give you constructive feedback, and help you be objective and realistic in your approach to your writing.

  • Provide motivation and encouragement, helping you overcome any little setbacks and build on your achievements and successes.

This one-to-one guidance gives you a trusting and open environment in which to work – so much so, that many students come to know their tutor as a real friend. What's more, the course has been designed so that your study path is fully flexible to your needs and circumstances. For example, you can study fiction before non-fiction. You can study at your own speed. You can give extra attention to a particular subject if you wish, and you can have extra assignments and extra writing practice if you feel the need.

In short, at The Writers Bureau we do our utmost to ensure that the personal guidance you receive, and the writing practice you gain, gives you the best possible chance to become a successful, published writer.

Lucy Pearce“I decided that this was the year to take myself seriously as a writer. I had been getting bits and pieces published for the past three years, but felt I'd hit an invisible wall. I wanted to start to earn properly from my writing and widen my readership, but didn't know how to approach bigger publications professionally – I was at sea.

“Enter The Writers Bureau. I'd seen them advertised for years in the Sunday supplements. When I looked into the course last January I thought, 'money-back guarantee – there's nothing to lose.'

“Well, I earned back my course fee in less than three months! The information in The Writers Bureau course booklets has been my pilot ship, and the feedback from my tutor, my lighthouse, showing up rocky spots I had not seen myself.”
