So, grasp this opportunity today, and soon we could be publishing a testimonial like the one below with YOUR name on it!


Rachel Dove

"The course helped me to focus on what type of writing I enjoy and discover what I’m not good at and don’t like. I have been published in Writing Magazine, Romance Matters Magazine for the RNA and have had fillers published in That’s Life and Take a Break.

"I won the Flirty Fiction Prima Magazine and Mills and Boon competition. The prize was £500, a three page feature in the magazine and the chance to work with Mills and Boon on my book. My tenth book, Meet Me At Fir Tree Lodge, came out in October 2020.

"Also I have three stories in three anthologies with other authors – we’ve raised almost £2,000 for cancer charities. “My dream really has come true and I’m still pinching myself!"

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 just find the confidence to send out your work to start earning from your writing, like our student below...


Mike Smith"The course has given me, not only the confidence, but the opportunity to experiment with different writing styles and techniques. The writing assignments have encouraged me to work outside of my comfort zone, and to write about subjects, and for markets, that I would never have considered. Not only has my grammar and sentence construction improved but the course has been instrumental in firing my imagination and getting me to look at things from a different perspective. Although it’s only been nine months since I started the course, I have earned £500 from writing and I’m awaiting further payments."

And There's Much More...

When we say our course is comprehensive, we really mean it! We teach you EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW to become a successful, well-paid freelance writer.

You will learn...

  • The fundamentals of writing professionally – from correct grammar and punctuation to how to present a professional image to a publisher or agent.

  • How to come up with an endless stream of ideas, and turn them into profitable writing projects!

  • How to develop your imagination and create your own unique, individual style which will have agents and publishers DESPERATE to get their hands on your work!

  • The secrets of writing compelling fiction – including plotting, characterization, dialogue, description, and more.

  • Essential legal aspects of writing – everything you need to know regarding copyright and libel.

  • How to negotiate a book contract – the key terms to ask for and pitfalls to avoid in the publishing jungle.

  • 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.

Laura Ansbro"The Writers Bureau course has given me the confidence to become self-employed - something I never thought I'd be brave enough to do - and I love the freedom, flexibility and variety that this brings to my life. So far I've earned over £1400 and I've appeared live on ITV's This Morning. The course was challenging and enjoyable. My tutor was so kind encouraging and helpful. Thank you Writers Bureau, it has been an absolute pleasure. You've changed my life."

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.
