Curtis Brown Creative: Six-Month Novel-Writing Course (Online)
Mon 7 Sep 2020 to Mon 1 Mar 2021
Our biggest online course gives you an intense learning experience as a writer with direct engagement with authors and a publisher, as well as literary agents. Take this course from anywhere in the world. Enrolling now for September 2020 start. Apply by 2 August.

This online novel-writing course is designed to be as useful and fulfilling as the courses we run in our offices, with contributions from agents here at Curtis Brown and C&W. This is a course for people who are serious about writing a novel. As well as being packed with useful content, it’s flexible so you can write and study at times to suit you.

We’re excited to be offering two brilliant, award-winning tutors for this course – meaning you’ll get two experienced teaching perspectives and two distinct teaching voices focused on your work across the six months. Commonwealth Book Prize-winning author Lisa O’Donnell will teach the first half of the course – after which, Costa-winning writer Andrew Michael Hurley will take the reins.

Lisa and Andrew will each lead weekly online writing workshops, set weekly writing exercises and provide one-to-one tutorials where they will give direct feedback to all students on their novels-in-progress.

Via our online learning platform, you’ll also get access to teaching videos, notes and resources from our CBC tutor team.

The Curtis Brown and C&W literary agents, a guest author and guest publisher, will offer writing and pitching advice in special events across the course. At the end of the course, students get to share the opening of their novels informally with the agent team.

Selective Entry: We offer places to the most talented applicants. Apply by 2 August 2020

Dates: 7 September 2020 - 1 March 2021
