“…The evenings as a group, re-reading my pieces and the fun we had together. To discover most of us can really write!…”

“…I found the course and especially the homework very stimulating. To be forced to finish a piece, think it through to the very end worked really well for me…”

 “…Writing together, really writing. Giving and receiving feedback. Talia’s way of teaching –coaching- appeals to me…”

 “…Talia, I like your way of teaching. You alternate assignments and firmly put us to work; writing. Participants have to overcome a barrier, but are inspired to keep on writing in the end!…”

 “…It really inspired me, but I am looking for more depth. I hope there will be a sequal…”

 

8-week writing courses

Whether you carefully want to try out your first stories, lyrics or blogs,
or you have written before and need a creative reboot,
I have several inspiring 8-week courses on offer for you.
Not only are the lessons informative and constructive, but you will also meet other friendly writers along the way.

As I like to keep my classes small and personal, I take only 6 students per course.

For more details on dates and prices, please scroll down.

I have different courses on offer.

NOTE: If you are not sure which one suits you best,
simply contact me and we will figure it out together.

The beginner’s level 1 course
This course is perfect for starting writers. In 8 lessons we will focus on the basics of writing, tackling subjects such as character building and how to strengthen your story. In a small group of like-minded people you will benefit from their feedback; what makes your writing work, where does your story become unclear or too long? In a safe environment, you will be able to develop your writing muscles and grow into a true storyteller.
Note: The Monday night group is full. If you want to attend,
please contact me so I can start a second group.

The Beginner’s level 2 course
Have you already done a writing course in the past and want to boost your skills? Have you done my beginners 1 course and want to continue? Then this is a perfect place for you to develop your writing skills further. This course leads to two short stories and teaches you more about structure and creative content. The feedback and support form the others is extremely beneficial and some students form little writing groups after.

The advanced course
For everyone who did my first two courses or has a good amount of writing skills/ experience, this is the perfect place.
I believe learning to write is not linear and everyone has strong points and weak points they can continue developing. The most important part is a framework of classes, and a creative crew to stimulate you.
The topics we deal with in this course are partly old matters, taught at a higher level, and plenty of new ones. The emphasis is more on writing and less on theory. I can not emphasize enough the importance of your fellow writers. Their feedback, input, and flaws serve as a huge catapult for your own creative development.
