I’ve run this course three times already (in summer 2014) and received some fantastic praise from learners. It turns out that a decade spent working in getting published and produced, and keeping good notes on every session I’ve been to, has given me plenty of insight to share (examples here!). And you can book your own course anytime by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The course is divided into 7 x 2-hour sessions and you can experience it in person or remotely via Skype or Google Hangouts – whatever suits you. The cost is £20 per hour per learner: email email@example.com to schedule yours.
Here is what learners have said about the course:
Ian is brilliant – calm and very tolerant, even today when he was being challenged! I am doing his 7 week “get your work published course” and for me it is perfect, I have never written anything apart from music so this is a good course for me to see where I could take things in the future so I understand my end goal. He is easy to understand, sets clear growth work should we want to do it and is very professional.

Thankyou Ian for such a great course! I feel I have a lot more confidence now to go ahead and get my work published.

I am more confident with my creative writing than ever before. Ian generated a safe and respectful atmosphere that made sharing work easy. But most importantly I was entertained, engaged and educated.

Learned so much I didn’t know – & so much detail with advice & suggestions, comments & feedback. Websites & apps – things I’d never thought of looking at/using.
Chance to do short pieces in class & longer at home – a relentless ‘kick up the backside’ that every promising (or not) writer needs.
So useful, so interesting – looking forward to the next term.
