Writers Web TV!

Have you ever wanted to attend a workshop but couldn't because of lack of time, childminder etc...? Well, here's an exciting new resource for writers - workshops, but with a difference, they are streamed live with an in-studio audience of other aspiring writers. The aim is the same as with any good workshop -  to help emerging writers on their path to publication but they are online, free-to-watch, and live. You can watch them & communicate with the workshop leader using twitter, facebook or email. You can watch it live or download it and watch it later. This is what they have to say...

The shows are streamed from a multi-camera broadcast studio, complete with an in-studio audience of aspiring writers who will present some of their work for critique by the best-selling authors. Led by Vanessa O’Loughlin, founder of, the panel will cover the key elements of fiction writing at every workshop, and furnish you with tips and advice to help you polish your writing and get it on the path to publication.

The first workshop Writing for Children and Young Adults will run on Saturday, September 28th 10am-4.30pm (London time) with picture book authors & illustrators Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick and Michael Emberley; Emmy award winning director Norton Virgien of Brown Bag Films, and Literary Agent Polly Nolan. They will be joined by international bestselling YA authors Meg Rosoff and Oisín McGann, all giving their sage advice and talking the viewers through the colourful world of children’s and YA fiction.

Sign up now at to join us on the 28th! Other upcoming courses include, Getting to the Heart of it: Writing Women’s Fiction on Tuesday, October 15th, Crime Pays: Writing Crime Fiction on Wednesday, October 30th, and Getting Published on Saturday, November 9th.
