Book now for Inspire  our second-level six-week creative writing course. Inspire is the follow-on course for our entry-level course, Ignite. But you are very welcome if you haven’t done Ignite previously too.

Inspire takes place entirely online – so you can get the benefits of this brilliant course no matter where you are in the world!

This six-week course offers weekly critique workshops as well as sessions on advanced writing techniques such as: modes of narration; pace; plotting a novel; editing; how to strengthen your regular writing practice; and how to read like a writer. The course includes a Q&A session with a literary agent or published author as well as sure-fire strategies on how to maintain motivation once the course is over.

If you’ve written a short story or had a go at a novel and want constructive feedback in a supportive group of women and non-binary writers, then Inspire is for you.

But don’t worry if you only have a scrap of writing or an idea, you’re very welcome whatever stage you’re at and there is no pressure to share.

What Students Say…

“Kerry Ryan’s Write Like a Grrrl workshops were perfectly pitched, informative, inclusive, and empowering. Kerry creates a non-threatening space to explore our ideas and produce valuable work in class. Her teaching style is informal and supportive – exactly what we need.”

“I really enjoyed Kerry’s writing workshops. She created a conducive atmosphere for writing, making it friendly and collaborative.  It was also a good mixture of practical exercises and useful advice. I would definitely attend a course run by Kerry again.”

“The course was fantastic. Without Kerry’s great lesson on ‘How to start writing and keep going’ I would not be writing at all, but I have now managed to do so regularly for the last year.”

“Kerry was an incredible tutor! She was supportive, encouraging and fun. I loved the fact that everything was up for discussion and she never talked down to us. She created a really friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The course was also so well structured, really easy to follow and never felt daunting or difficult. She was just brilliant!”
