Curtis Brown Creative, the writing school run by the major literary agency, has a range of courses available this year to help you do just that, with the guidance of our expert tutors and with input from our literary agents, top publishers and major authors:
Our 6-Month Novel-Writing Course in London, with tutor Simon Wroe (13 Sept – 7 March) is an intensive course held in the board room of our London offices. Visiting speakers include literary agents Richard Pike, Jonny Geller and Norah Perkins. The strongest 15 students will be selected from a larger pool of applicants.
Or you can apply for our 6-Month Online Course, with tutor Lisa O’Donnell, (10 September – 4 March), designed for flexible study at any time that suits you. Take part in the weekly writing workshops, one-to-one tuition and day-long events with our literary agent team.
If you’re writing Fiction for Children or Young Adults, take a look at our 3-Month Online course taught by bestselling children’s author Catherine Johnson (15 Oct – 28 Jan), featuring participation from the Curtis Brown and C+W agents specialising in children’s books.
Finally, if you’re after a shorter, cheaper course that is still packed with great teaching materials, join one of our 6-week online courses for all-comers: Starting to Write Your Novel helps you develop an idea and write your opening; Write to the End of Your Novel gets you through that tricky first draft; and Edit & Pitch Your Novel helps you rewrite and prepare your pitch package to send to agents and publishers.
