It’s 2024, and once again our online ‘Writing Fiction’ classes are about to begin. To see what the classes entail and all the dates and times please click HERE.

We have three different nights: Tues (begins 16 Jan), Wed (begins 17th Jan) & Sun (begins 21 Jan). New and continuing writers are very welcome. The groups bring writers into a supportive literary community, motivating and inspiring writing. It’s a zone where people are able to experiment. Writers get their work critiqued and build knowledge from this process and also from the process of critiquing the work of others.

During the classes, I always notice writers getting better, not just as writers but as readers. We discuss literary techniques: narration, dialogue, characterisation, voice, setting, story, and much more. Each session, and each class, is different.

These groups are great for beginners and for experienced authors. As a bonus you get to meet different people from around the UK, Europe, the USA and beyond. It’s a very rewarding and enjoyable thing to do.

As I write this – on 14th January 2024 – we have a couple of spaces left in each group. You can buy the classes through the website HERE or if you have any questions, please email

When I started these classes in 2001, I planned to do it for a year at most. But here we are in 2024 and the ‘Writing Fiction’ classes are stronger than ever. I’m looking forward to all the work I’ll read this year. Maybe see you there.
