Writers Bureau (The)'s courses and profile on Hotcourses

Whatever your writing ambitions The Writers Bureau can help you achieve them.

As Britain’s largest specialist writing college we offer you a wide range of home-study courses with expert personal tuition. Whether you want to write full time, part time for an extra income or for a hobby we have a course that will suit your needs.

The Writers Bureau courses include:

Comprehensive Creative Writing
Freelance Journalism
Writing For Children
The Art of Writing Poetry
Article Writing
Non-fiction Writing
Fiction Writing
Novel and Short Story Writing
Write for Profit Using the Internet

As well as teaching you how to write and develop your style every course shows you how to sell your work. You learn how to find markets and how to exploit them in the UK and overseas. You are taught how to present your writing; when to send covering letters; how and when to use an agent, and how to deal with editors and publishers so that your writing has the best chance of being published.

Your tutors are successful published writers so they know how to help you improve your work and tailor it for the marketplace. They are selling their own work regularly, so are well placed to show you how to do the same. The effectiveness of this part of your training is proved by the success of our students. They regularly have their writing published – because our methods work.

You can send in your assignments by post or by email. Whichever method you use you will receive a full assessment of your work. Your tutor will advise you on your style, the subject matter, the presentation, grammar or anything else that matters. Through this personal guidance your tutor will encourage you, be objective, but above all give you constructive comment.

You don’t need any special background or education to start. Again and again our students have proved that writers come from all walks of life – housewives, teachers, civil servants, business people, factory workers, senior citizens, teenagers – people who have, under our guidance, developed their writing to a publishable standard.

The Comprehensive Creative Writing course, Freelance Journalism course and the Writing for Children course all come with our unique triple guarantee. This states:

The Writers Bureau is accredited by the Open and Distance Learning Quality Council and this, together with our guarantees, confirms our commitment to providing high quality courses with excellent tuition.

The Writers Bureau's aim is simple: to help you become a successful writer.
