Online writing courses: eight weeks or six months of writing support
Our eight-week online writing course or six months of online writing support offer you companionship, guidance and detailed feedback on your writing. Writing is almost always a solitary business. Having someone to talk to about the inevitable questions and challenges can mean the difference between finishing your manuscript or abandoning your book part of the way through. Read more about the writing courses we offer. Or read about the practical and constructive guidance we offer in our manuscript assessments.
Today, thanks to Sarah, Text Publishing has released my memoir 'The Boy Who Loved Apples: A mother's battle with her son's anorexia'. Sarah taught me to write. Through her, I learned to construct a scene, to write realistic dialogue, to develop my characters, to pay attention to subplot. She helped me grapple with concepts such as story arc and narrative tension and timelines. No matter what I wrote, Sarah somehow saw the potential and kept me at it. Her constant encouragement and enthusiasm buoyed me through the process of the first draft, subsequent revisions, and editing. Amanda Webster
Working with Al as an editor was an absolute delight.The editing process was seamless and insightful. Al was timely and efficient and the structural changes he suggested improved the flow of the manuscript. His suggested copy changes tightened up my writing without impinging on my voice. Although Al didn't represent my target market his commentary on what appealed or had an impact gave me independent confirmation on the story's strengths. Fiona Evans
