Creative Writing Courses

Creative writing is a most rewarding and stimulating pastime. But the rewards aren't just creative. You can also earn a spare or full-time income from your writing if you want to. Our creative writing courses will show you how.

For all our new writers we strongly recommend the Comprehensive Creative Writing course as you are covered by our no-risk triple guarantee. However, because of your own experience and circumstances you may feel that one of the other courses is better for you. All our writing courses are ideal for beginners. No previous experience or special education is required. You can earn while you learn. You can study from anywhere around the world.

The quality of the tuition is the same with every course and you’ll generally work with the same tutor throughout. Many students say this element of their course is just like having their own personal writing classes.

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."
