Bourne to Write is a tutor-led online creative writing community. At our weekly creative writing workshops on Zoom, you can learn how to nurture your imagination while making new friends in a creative environment.

At the moment we have three weekly workshops on Zoom which you can join:

Monday evening 7.30pm – 10pm

Wednesday evening 8.00pm – 10.15pm

Friday afternoon 2.30pm – 5pm

10 Workshop sessions cost £120 which includes weekly advice on homework via email. If you miss a workshop it will be held in credit for you. In the workshop you’ll write a timed exercise and share it with the group, you’ll get homework, which you will also read out and recommended reading.

The weekly Zoom workshops take a student-centred approach to creative writing, offering a range of strategies to help you develop as a writer. Participants are encouraged to explore their creative writing potential through self-awareness and self-discovery.

The workshops are suitable for aspiring writers of all levels and abilities and for anyone with a strong interest in reading and writing, who would like to deepen their understanding of the creative process.

I also offer one-to-one tuition and regular specific topic workshops with full notes.
