Online Writing Courses with Writers Bloc
Writers Bloc is proud to introduce, with support from the Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund, an entirely free online series of workshops for emerging and established writers alike to hone their skills.
We’ve secured Australia’s best and most charming presenters: Benjamin Law (The Family Law), Alison Croggon (The Bone Queen) and Patrick Lenton (A Man Made Entirely of Bats and Momentum Books). They’re going to be lifting the veil on the creative industry’s toughest topics from freelancing to grant writing to social media. With our webinars, all you need is a computer with a decent internet connection and you’ll be able to learn from our publishing industry experts.
We decided to create this series to support all writers in Australia and around the world. We understand not everyone can have access to writing resources due to financial constraints or because of living in regional and remote areas. We wanted to bridge this gap and provide a resource that will help the next generation of Australian voices shine.
We could not do this if it were not for the very generous support of the Copyright Agency's Cultural Fund. These three courses are part of a program of six webinars designed to help writers learn, no matter where you are. We hope you love them as much as we do.
