Introductory Workshops with Ed Wright and guest authors
The Creative Word Shop’s eight-week introductory courses help you acquire the skills you’ll need to plunge into the short story, novella, screenplay or novel you’re burning to write. Discover the secret to unlocking your own creativity, and learn the technical elements of writing fiction, through discussion, guided exercises and selected readings. 

Memoir Writing Workshop (Introductory) with David Kelly
Take those first towards writing your memoir in this fascinating course that will teach how to find your voice, identify key incidents in your life and shape them into narrative form. Learn how to rediscover old selves and write about them from the advantage of your lived experience. David Kelly has a Masters and a PhD in Creative Arts. His memoir based novel Fantastic Street was published by Picador and he has had work in Best Australian Stories, The Monthly, and The Lifted Brow. His latest memoir, State of Origin will be published by Puncher & Wattmann in 2019

Intermediate/Advanced Workshops Ed Wright and guest authors
Have you been writing for a while but feel as though you want to work and complete something to your satisfaction. Our Intermediate workshop will provide you with the structures, tools and guidance to bring this to fruition. You will benefit from internationally published authors who are skilled at helping people to find and hone their creative impulses.

Corporate Workshops
Research has shown that writers and readers have better developed empathy than the general population. In sales and marketing in particular, where success is often contingent on telling a good story, this can make a difference. Shout your staff a corporate creative writing workshop in our Hunter Street Studio. It’s fun, invigorating, and a great way to improve your staff’s communication skills.
