Our Creative Writing Workshops and Courses are first and foremost about fun and inspiring a love of writing. They also aim to be as personalised as possible, and results-based so the writer feels pride and satisfaction in finishing or mastering a piece of creative writing work.

Creative Writing Video Workshops are online, taken at your own pace and grant your family Lifetime Access, so you can use them over and over to create many different writing works. A large library of genres and techniques are available for you to choose from. They are suitable for ages 3 to adult. Priced at $35.
Creative Writing Workshops are held one-on-one, or with a sibling or friend, online via Skype, at a time which suits you, organised personally with the mentor. Choose from bespoke workshops, which covered exactly what the writer and/or parent wishes, or from our selection of themed workshops. Once you have booked, please contact me to arrange a time. These Workshops are suitable for age 7 to adult. Priced at $100 for 1.5 hrs, or use your Creative Kids Voucher.
Creative Writing Courses are designed for the writer to complete a polished piece of writing work with the close, personalised help of myself, a writing mentor. They can work on a fiction novel, or a non-fiction book, such as memoir. The course consists of five video workshop modules, taken at the writer’s own pace. Between each module the writer will be contacted by me to encourage progress and to provide valuable feedback, to ensure the work is finished. These courses are suitable for age 8 to adult. Currently reduced from $350 to $250.
Creative Writing Workshops are highly personalised, one-on-one or small group writing workshops, tailored exactly to the writer’s specific interest. Does your child want to write a book? We will generate and develop their idea and form it into a whole book. Is your teen keen to journal? Learning Memoir writing techniques will turn this passion into a project. Working with a professional writing mentor and published author and journalist, your child or teen creative writer will enjoy individualised attention in an atmosphere of fun.
All styles of writing are available in the workshops. Your child write a fiction book, explore poetry, master short stories, produce script writing, explore journalism, bang out some slam poetry and generate an audience with clever blogging. Writing competition entries are always encouraged and personally mentored for our child and teen writers.
All writing genres can be explored in our workshops; from general fiction to the more specific genres of fantasy, thriller, sci-fi or cli-fi writing. We can create uplit, historical, humour, romance writing works. Or run writing workshops on creative non-fiction writing such as memoir, produce graphic novels, contemporary realistic fiction, and much more. If your child or teen wants to write it, we will workshop it!
We also run workshops on a variety of different creative writing techniques, for those writers who really want to throw themselves deep into the creative and literary craft. These include techniques such as character development, turning points, pace, writing the senses, scene structure, and a-library’s-worth more. You ask for it – we will do it!
Let’s see where in the world your words can take you!
“It went so well. They spent a whole hour on it and are only about quarter of the way through the video clips. I think I will get an hour a day, for a week, from it!! They loved it – I had to ask them to stop writing and planning. I’d say it’s great for siblings or friends to do together as there was a lot of discussion and idea sharing- even though they are writing their own books.Thanks so much – it was nice to have a “lesson” taken by someone else!”

“Hi Felicity, I just wanted to let you know that Lucas is LOVING your video, and is basically watching it on repeat while her writes. We fully support and love the online writing course and can’t wait for the next installation!”
