“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!”
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.
The January courses are in full swing.
Dates for September 2020 will be up soon.
You can check my bite-size workshops to get you started and to see if you like my style. I hope to meet you there soon.
If you are not sure which course suits you best,
simply contact me and we will figure it out together.
The beginners course
This course is perfect for starting writers. In 8 lessons we tackle subjects such as character building, dialogue, and how to strengthen your story. In a small group of like-minded people you will benefit from their feedback; 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 intermediate 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. This course leads to two short stories and teaches you more about structure, plotting, and creative content. The feedback and support from the others is extremely beneficial and often students form little writing groups after.
Please contact me if you want to sign up.
The advanced group
If you did my first two courses or you have 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 focus 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.

Les in het Nederlands?
Helaas geef ik zelf geen les in het Nederlands omdat ik hier simpelweg niet genoeg aanmeldingen voor krijg. Wel ken ik goede schrijfdocenten en breng ik je graag met hen in contact. Ook kun je hier kijken voor schrijfcursussen in het hele land.
