Workshops and Courses

My face-to-face and residential teaching is currently on hold until spring 2021. For virtual support and courses please see Book Doctor One-to-Ones and Virtual Courses and Retreats.

You can contact me to join my mailing list for advance notice of future sessions. I also offer a range of ‘off the shelf’ courses on subjects from developing an initial idea to getting your novel published. If you run a writing group and would like to arrange a workshop for your group just get in touch.

I also run residential courses for developing novelists.

Comments from past students

“The event was tailored to the needs of the group, well structured and expertly delivered. We managed to cover a great deal in the time and there were a few light bulb moments for all of us. Alison is very engaging as a tutor and brought the theory to life with some fairy-tale examples that everyone could relate to. However, I will never look at Snow White the same again! Thoroughly enjoyed it! Thank you.”

“Alison’s courses are friendly, supportive, and constructive. The exercises were great… highly recommended!”

“Alison’s courses encourage creativity and build confidence. These skills continue long after the course is complete. An excellent start for any writer.’

  1. When you say “any stage” – does, I have had the idea for 2 years, recently attended a Guardian Masterclass with Lucy Coats (to find out the rules), and have the first para pretty much cracked count, please? If so I’ll definitely book a place. Thanks Lizzie


    1. Lizzie,

      That sounds absolutely fine. There will probably be people on the course who are further down the writing path than you, but so long as you’ve got a strong idea there’ll be plenty that you should find useful.
