Peruse our Quarter 2 Program

As of today, summer is officially done. Autumn equinox heralds the arrival of the red leaves and, this year, our Quarter 2 program.

What better way to launch than with another round of Autumn Inspirations: Daily Writing Prompts? The only topic more fitting would be Beginnings and Endings. Well, we’ve got those, too.

So, make yourself a cuppa, dig out your slipper socks (or is that just us?) and peruse our full suite of April – June offerings. There’s no excuse for hibernation just yet.

Then there’s Dynamic Dialogue, where Victoria Purman (right) spins everyday talk into revelations of fear, desire, motivation and more.

Plus perennial favourites Getting Started, Getting Published, TWELVE and Creative Writing Bootcamp for Teens.

And we round the program out with a huge Self-Publishing Weekend! This hothouse features Euan Mitchell, Joel Naoum, Clare Connelly and Kristin Weidenbach.

‘Til then, don’t touch that dial. We’ll have more surprises for you as the weeks and months tick by. In the meantime, why not tell a budding high-school writer about our vibrant Youth Program?

For now, happy writing! See you at a workshop soon.
