It’s time to dream big.

It’s a time to recognise that this is the ideal time to learn new skills, or begin new projects.  Ahead of the new normal, this should be a time for new beginnings.

That’s why we’ve set up Creating Writers, associated with the prestigious Creative Design School.  We’re here help everyone write better – or start writing that novel, and make a dream come true!

We offer introductory courses in creative writing, and writing for the media.  Our flagship is our Diploma course in creative writing. Our aim is to help to – in your career, or in your creative journey.

Because many of us want to write a novel.  Usually, all that’s holding us back is confidence and an understanding of the elements that go together to make a novel.

Our Diploma course in creative writing provides the perfect learning experience for anyone who is serious about starting to write a book.  You may simply lack the skills or confidence to put pen to paper.

Creating Writers is run by novelist Charlie Laidlaw who is passionate about reading, writing and helping others learn the dark arts of writing skilfully.


What makes our practical courses different is that you’ll end up with a Certificate or Diploma at the end of it.  That could also help with your career.

Unlike most online courses which are often just an accumulation of videos or written material, our tutors are always on hand.  Always available to give practical advice and help.

Students are therefore never alone.  You’ll be supported every step of the way, receiving constant tuition.

For our Diploma course, the qualification you’ll receive on successful completion is accredited and equivalent to a Higher National Diploma (HND) Level 5, Diploma of Higher Education, and EQF (European Qualifications Framework) Level 6.

The Creating Writers approach is to give all the advantages of a bricks-and-mortar college, with real tutors and one-to-one tuition.

Creating Writers

You’ll be expected to study, submit written material and be judged on it, in exactly the same way you would at a physical college.

Our courses are therefore interactive and, yes, challenging.  Gaining that Certificate or Diploma will involve hard work – but work that is rewarding and fun.

So, if you’re serious about wanting to acquire new skills, why not have a look at what Creating Writers offers?

We recognise that you may have other time commitments, so all our courses are built around you.  This allows you to study at your own pace, with no harsh deadlines.

Instead, there is the prospect of making your dream come true.  And that’s what we want more than anything.
