Our mission at Creating Writers is to make you the best writer you can be and, we hope, help to make your writing dream come true.

That’s why, in association with the Creative Design School, we’ve created a Diploma course to help anyone who is serious about improving their writing skills.

It’s intensive, fun, with a real qualification at the end of it.
But we’re also here to help if you’ve written a book and need help assessing or editing it. Or even if you’re having trouble finishing it.
We’re a full-service resource for aspiring writers, run by an established author.

Our role is to be with you at every step on your writing journey.


At Creating Writers, our Diploma course is built around each student. We don’t offer a one-size-fits-all approach. Our course is interactive with one-to-one tuition. We’ll hone your strong points and help you with your weaker ones.

You can learn at your own pace, and you will have your own one-to-one Training Coach who can help at any time at the click of the mouse

Our mission at Creating Writers is for you to succeed, and we’ll be on hand at every step of the way.
