Creative writing course, live online, one-to-one. Beginners to advanced.



One-to-one, creative writing course that will spark your imagination and help you achieve your writing goals. Whether you're an absolute beginner or have been writing for years, this course will inform and inspire you.

Friendly, practical and fun, the course is held live on-line using Zoom or WhatsApp and consists of five one-hour sessions that you can take at your own pace. While most people opt for one hour per week over five weeks, you can do all five sessions over a week or take the whole course in one day if you prefer.

Each one-to-one course costs £100 per person. It includes five hours of live on-line, one-to-one tuition, emailed notes and short feedback on homework.

The beginner's course looks at characters and dialogue, setting and tone, narrative viewpoint and genres. If you prefer to focus on other areas, you can create a bespoke course from over 100 classes (eg: writing romantic fiction, writing YA fiction, creating heroes, group dynamics in fiction, siblings in fiction, internal voice, epistolary fiction, editing, etc). You can also use the course to nudge yourself over the finish line with an on-going writing project.

I highly recommend Deana's creative writing classes. I found the course inspiring, fun and thought provoking. Despite having an idea for a novel, I hadn't written for quite some time prior to starting the course. Now I have a clear direction, write regularly and have learnt techniques and skills that have really improved my writing. I found Deana's feedback incredibly helpful and her a fun and inspiring person to spend time with - she is clearly passionate about what she does. I look forward to taking more classes in the future. Thank you.

Response from Deana Luchia:

Thank you for such a lovely review of my course. I really loved your ideas and hope to read your first novel soon!

This was a wonderful and very thoughtful introduction to creative writing. I had drafted some writing of my own prior to the course and the tutor, Deana, structured the course around my work. This has helped me tremendously with my work. The sessions involve Deana explaining some key points and then you have to actually engage in the work. I recommend this course most highly and will certainly be taking further courses with Deana.

Response from Deana Luchia:

Thank you so much, Marcus. I’m really glad you enjoyed the course and found it useful. I look forward to reading more of your work.
