About This Program

Join award-winning GP author Jonathan Whitelaw as he looks at starting a creative writing project, seeing it through to the end and then what comes next. From writing your first words and crafting characters to getting your book on the shelf, these workshops will give you everything you need to know to write that story you've always wanted to tell.


Class one: The Basics: Monday, January 15

Learn the basic principles of storytelling - start, middle and end, creating characters and keeping the reader hooked.


Class two: Stuck in the middle with you: Wednesday, January 24

This class looks at good habits to keep you going throughout the writing process. From daily word challenges to staying focussed on the task at hand and what tricks and tools can see you over the finish line.


Class three: What's next?: Monday, February 5

A broad look at the publishing industry, agents, self-publishing and traditional publishing and how best to go about getting your work on the shelf and under readers' noses.
