“…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, 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 class.

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

I have different courses on offer.
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
Have you always wanted to write stories, did you start several times and got stranded or have you already filled piles of notebooks, but never had anyone read it? Then this course is perfect for you! In 8 lessons we will focus on the basics of writing.
We will tackle subjects such as dialogue, 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.

The middle/advanced course
Have you already done a writing course in the past and need 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. The course contains lots of writing and will be complemented with additional theory.
In this course, the feedback and support form the others is extremely beneficial and often students form little writing groups after.
