Discounts are available on our courses for members of our Community. See all the membership packages here.

PLEASE NOTE:

We are in the process of moving all of our courses to our new Online Community website so, for the moment, only the courses already transferred are available for booking and these are shown below. We hope to have all courses transferred by mid-July 2021.

The courses running on our new community site are currently only chargeable in USD but will be updated to GBP soon once the platform launches this facility.

If you’re not already a member of the community, buying a course running on this platform will also give you access to our lively, friendly and supportive community where we hold lots of live online events designed to help you develop your writing.

Any questions before booking, email us and we’ll be happy to help!
