Whether you want to write short stories/fiction/plays/poetry, Ignite is for you! Whether you’ve written before or are an absolute beginner, you are very welcome.

You’ll learn how to push through doubt, reduce fear of the blank page, become disciplined in your practice and enjoy writing so much more. You’ll become skilled in characterisation, dialogue, creating dynamic settings and other essential writing techniques.

With Ignite, you aren’t expected to write for big chunks of time or to share work. You’ll develop your skills and confidence in a small supportive group, joining us via Zoom for live two-hour workshops each week.

If you haven’t written creatively before but always wanted to, or if you haven’t written for some time and want to kick-start your practice, then this low-cost, intensive course is for you.

Hundreds of students have graduated from WLAG’s Ignite courses! Come and join us!
