Are at the heart of everything we do.
Writers' Block has been the catalyst which has transformed me from an amateur to a professional writer. They are unique in the way they push and challenge writers to the next step in their development, providing real progression.
Writing a novel can sometimes feel like a mammoth task, but the support, feedback and practical advice I’ve received from Writers' Block is what gives me the drive to continue writing.
Writers' Block gave me confidence in my writing. The workshops and mentoring have been an invaluable step to earning an income as a writer, and to applying for, and getting, further opportunities that I would never have dreamed of before.
Thanks to Writers’ Block I have a draft of one novel that would not have been completed without the impetus of the scheme and a chunk of a second that would not exist at all without it.
The support Laura and James have given all of us is phenomenal. They work really hard to get to know how you work best, and the mentoring they offer is invaluable. They’re knowledgable, passionate and hugely enthusiastic about helping each writer find the techniques and approach that best suits what they’re trying to do.
It's hard to describe just how good Writers' Block are. From plot to character development, fledging idea to first draft, Laura and James use exercises, talks and sessions that really aid writers in achieving their aims. Giving writers an opportunity to network with people from the industry is vital in understanding what becoming a writer means, and what it takes.
