How it works

What you can expect as a WriteWell member

WriteWell is a safe and accessible place online where anyone can have a go at writing to help themselves feel better.

Our growing online learning community is dedicated to the benefits of writing for mental health and has been developed by the online educators and writing specialists at Professional Writing Academy.

But how does it work - how do you get started?

For £11 a month or £120 a year (12 months for the price of 11), members get access to:

    • An unrivalled collection of expert-led therapeutic writing classes - from warm-ups you can do on your commute to fixed-date four-week courses held in small groups. Learn how to write yourself calmer, build better habits, become more self-aware or dip a toe into writing fiction.
    • Live events and writing workshops with inspirational guest speakers. See what’s on this month.
    • Free-writing evenings, a book group and mindfulness weeks.
    • Forums to share your writing, ideas and thoughts.
    • An accessible, supportive online community* that’s open 24/7 from anywhere in the world.

Everyone can try WriteWell for two weeks for free, and our subscriptions can be cancelled hassle-free at any time.

*More about our community

Everything happens in our secure online space, where we encourage you to write and learn together, to discuss ideas, and make new friends on our courses and live events.

There is no set time that you have to be online. Most people who join WriteWell fit learning around their work or caring responsibilities, which is why we teach in this non-synchronous way. There is plenty of support if you get stuck from our Community Guides who are mental-health first aiders.

All our content and learning materials are available 24/7 and include text, audio and video (with written transcripts). Any live events and get-togethers are held on Zoom at a set time.

We want you to have the best experience on our community platform - if you have any accessibility needs, please come chat to us:
