*Online classroom*

Do your first drafts simply gush onto the blank page? Is it your greatest delight to put pen to paper? Well, friend, this is not the class for you!  

This 3-hour "live-streamed classroom" is for those of us who find it hard to start, struggle to keep going, and don't seem to be able to finish writing anything we actually care about. You'll be able to chip in, discuss, ask questions and chat with your teacher and classmates in real time.

By approaching writing as a layered process, with humour and empathy, Hayley will take you through some practical strategies for getting words on the page, as well as tips and tricks for developing and revising work.

Learn about ‘Breathing in’ and gain other insights into how established writers keep themselves returning to the work and the joys of the craft. Whatever kind of writing you do (from novels to pointed notes left on car windscreens), you’ll wrap up this session invigorated, with a rock-solid plan of attack.

So grab a cuppa, your notebook and a pen or pencil - let's write!
