Do you want to build a career as a writer?

On the last Sunday of each month, I’ll hold a one-hour masterclass where I’ll talk for about half an hour on a writing-related topic, followed by a half hour Q&A workshop where you can discuss any issues or dilemmas you’re having, as well as benefit from the questions asked by others in the group.

I have run this format before and it works really well, as we usually get a mix of topics and useful discussion, and everyone gets to talk about the subjects they really want to learn about.

Classes start at 8pm GMT / 3pm EST / 12pm PST.
