Lots of Interaction

with feedback from the teacher and fellow writers on every assignment plus there’s a weekly live online session (with recording)

International community

with like-minded people (from ages 18 to 78) from all over the world (we've had students from every continent except Antarctica)

What our students say

I’ve never managed to give writing a steady and credible role in my daily life and for the last decade or more I simply did not write. The courses have changed all that. I am writing all the time now, and am more and more at ease in feeding my daily experience through the internal wordmill and into my notebook for later.

John Carnegie

I am very impressed with the community feel the Collective offers, the quality of teaching, and the quality of the courses themselves. Also, the Collective is so positive, nurturing & optimistic. In the past, whenever I tried to write under other teachers, I did not feel supported so experiencing the Collective’s massive amount of support has been quite pleasantly surprising.  I truly feel the Collective could make a writer out of anybody.

The International Writers’ Collective is more than just a workshop. It’s a community. A group of people of all ages, from all over the world, with different backgrounds and various professional occupations who have one thing in common: we want to write.

From our director

For many people, signing up for a course is their first step in making time for their writing, making time to exercise their imaginations, making time to feed their creative selves.

I’m so passionate about the International Writers’ Collective because I’ve seen the difference the courses make in people’s lives, not just in their writing but in things as fundamental as confidence, career and even identity.
