Apply for Write to Work ONLINE!
Write to Work is a free innovative writing course aiming to develop the writing skills and confidence you need to find the job you want. This next course, beginning on Wednesday 26th August 2020, will be delivered entirely online in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Over 12 weeks we will deliver specialist writing workshops via Zoom video conferencing, hosted by published writers and industry professionals, all offering their personal insights and tips for success.
We know how important it is to be creative and diversify skill sets in this changed employment landscape. We want to provide a supportive and friendly space for learners to explore a range of writing skills and help you build your portfolio, develop professional connections and take positive next steps into employment or further education.
During the course you’ll be producing work for publication that will be printed in a professional anthology, which will then be sold in local bookstores, Waterstones and online. We are excited to announce we will also be providing one on one mentoring support for participants with industry professionals.
