I needed to finish my memoir and stop the writing procrastination. In the first term at Creative Word Shop I learned so much, I enrolled again. Ed expanded my skills with accurate feedback, guiding my writing voice and helping me stay on track. The workshops were fun, educational and professional and my book would not have been published, had it not been for Ed’s encouragement and wonderful teaching.

The way they sound, the small differences in their meanings, the story of how meaning is constantly evolving. We love to put them into sentences and refine those sentences until they feel just right. We love putting sentences together to form paragraphs and organising those paragraphs into stories and poems.
We love writing for the way it helps us make sense of our world and introduces us to new ideas, how it allows us to pretend to be other people and express our fantasies.
At the Creative Word Shop we like to share this love through Workshops for Kids that help build their confidence in their writing while providing the scaffolding to develop their skills and imagination. Our Adult Workshops are designed to teach people writing craft and help those already engaged in writing projects to bring them to completion. Our teachers are all published writers so we know how difficult yet rewarding this can be.
Works we have edited have been short-listed for the Miles Franklin Prize and Prime Ministers’ Awards. Our manuscript assessment services have been used by numerous writers.
We also provide ghost-writing and copywriting services. If you don’t love words as much as we do, we can help write your story or build valuable conversations with your clients.
