Explore writing for wellbeing with a friendly bunch of fellow writers on our four-week courses. We have several starting this month – here’s just a few of them:

    • Creating Calm 4-week course (from Monday 9 January @ 9:00am onwards)
      During this four-week course, learn how to be more mindful and discover how writing can invite calmness into your life. (Available from 9am, but there’s no particular time you need to be online – you can start at a time that suits you.)
    • Starting to Write Fiction 1 – 4 week course starts (from Monday 16 January @ 9:00AM)
      This course is a must for any budding fiction writer. Maybe you are writing fiction already and need more guidance to develop a story and create compelling characters and scenes. This course will help get you started!
    • The Big Picture – 4 week course starts (from Monday 23 January @ 9:00AM)
      This course helps you to find meaning and understanding by creating space between your inner and the outer world. Looking at things from a higher perspective will help you gain clarity in all areas of your life.

Just Write

Monthly prompts to kickstart your writing, with space to share work and chat with other writers.

    • Janurary prompt: Small steps
      Better to light one candle than to curse the darkness. What small steps can you take this new year to improve your life? How can this lovely Chinese proverb inspire you to light up an area in your life that you haven’t noticed before? You can use the December monthly prompt to help you reflect on last year and to look ahead to 2023. Need something to write on? Grab your WriteWell digital journal.
