Creative Writing

Maya Angelou said, “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” Do you have a story to tell, but don’t know where to start? Creative writing can be taught just like any other art form. Even those who already possess considerable creative writing skills can benefit from the structure of a class. Our creative writing classes in Sydney are in the Central Business District, right where the action is. We aim for convenience with nearby public transport and a building that is fully equipped and disabled accessible. Our classes are offered Monday through Sunday, yes Sunday, day and evenings. We offer exceptional prices and a relaxing environment with friendly tutors who encourage a positive social community with no pressure or stress in learning. So join a class now and let us help you ‘find your voice’, explore what makes good writing, and tell your story.
