Creative Writing Courses

Fridays 3.00pm – 5.00pm New course from June 25 to September 3 2021

Anna’s Creative Writing courses have been running since 2018 and have brought together writers from Brighton and beyond to form a supportive and welcoming group of writers. Since joining Anna’s group, members have got agents, finished novels, won competitions and finished poetry and short story collections. If you’d like to start taking time for your writing, to learn a new skill, or to get closer to publication, this is the course for you. 

Each course has two free bursary places for underrepresented writers and a reduced price for writers on low-income. Places are limited, so send Anna and email to find out first about the next one.

You ever fancied chancing your arm at being a writer? Well, as chance would have it… The West Hill Writers Group meet every Friday afternoon to focus their energies under the guidance of Anna Burtt.

“I joined the West Hill Writers Group this January, via Zoom sessions”, said group member JE Seuk. “Already they’ve shared insights, motivation, discipline, and community beyond all expectations. I can’t wait for meetings to resume in-person at West Hill Hall at the end of June.”

There’s also a new bursary for underrepresented writers. There’s a group anthology to be published in coming months. Advice about agents and publishing, opportunities for personalised feedback, writing exercises, and more.

If you find yourself itching to join but anxious about fitting in, know that there is no one size fits all West Hill Writer. “The ages range from 20-something to 70-something,” said Seuk. “Some have decades of writing experience, while others write for fun after the kids are tucked off to bed. Some voices are literary, others commercial. We’re all different, but we all love writing”.
