No matter what kind of writing you’re doing, I’m a big believer in courses. You get the feedback and the pressure you need to do better work. Today I heard about Allaboutwriting, which is run by some very accomplished writers. From their Facebook page:
Allaboutwriting is a partnership between Richard Beynon and Jo-Anne Richards who are passionate about good writing, and have devised their courses to help communicate that passion – plus the skills that make it much more than an academic exercise.
We invite you to join one of our courses either online from anywhere in the world or face-to-face in South Africa.
The face-to-face courses offer you the chance to interact with like-minded writers intent not just on improving their writing skills, but on having fun while doing so. There is nothing quite as collegial as discussing solutions to literary problems with a company of people engaged in the same frustrating, exhausting, exhilarating quest to tell an engaging story as effectively as possible.
The online courses offer you a one-on-one relationship with Richard, Jo-Anne or Mandy which includes personal feedback on all assignments.
We love running these courses for quite selfish reasons. The fact is, during each course, we learn something we didn’t know before – or have insights confirmed by one or other of the participants – or are reminded, repeatedly, of the quite astonishing levels of talent that exist even in people who deny they’re capable of framing a well-balanced sentence.
Which is why we’d love to have you on one of our next courses as you learn the delicate arts of enticing the genie out of the bottle.
