Description

Our series of creative writing courses are designed specifically for Black women and Women of Colour. From the selected texts to the recommended reading, all of our modules and resources are centred on the works of Black women and WoC writers. Each course offers a relaxing and encouraging environment for women to explore their creativity, nurture their writing skills, and network with key people in the industry.
