Have you always wanted to write but don't know where to start? Would you like to work on improving your characters, settings and dialogue? Are you stuck in the middle of a novel and need a friendly push to the finish line? Are you interested in trying something new and creative?
My name is Deana Luchia and I teach creative writing workshops that will spark your imagination and help you achieve your writing goals. Whether you want to write a short story or novel, try your hand at poetry or children’s fiction, or simply want to do something new, there’s a class or workshop that is perfect for you.
Friendly, informative and fun, writing sessions are held live on-line (using Zoom or WhatsApp) in small groups of between 2-5 people.
You can take a beginner's course (six one-hour sessions), a follow-on course (also six sessions) or handpick a series of six sessions from over 60 different topics.
The workshops are hands-on with lots to write in each session and, at no extra cost, the chance to get feedback on homework.
Sessions can be held on most dates (please contact me to discuss options) or you can join an existing class.
I have an M.A. in Professional Writing, am a published author and journalist, and have worked in print media for over twenty-five years.
Each course costs £60 per person when there is a group class of 2-5 adults. It includes six hours of live on-line tuition, emailed notes and feedback on homework.

Deana leads a really great course. I've always been a bit reluctant to do these kinds of courses in the past as I've been worried that I would find them a bit intimidating and dry. But Deana's classes are engaging and fun. She has loads of anecdotes and it was a genuine pleasure to be in her company. Highly recommended!
Thank you, Abdul! Really glad you enjoyed the course. Hope you're still writing. You had some great ideas.
I’ve been contemplating doing a course like this for ages and so glad I finally got around to it. Deana, you are very inspiring and have already helped me to get a lot of my ideas into order. I’m feeling very excited to learn more from you. Thanks so much!
Thank you! I’m really happy you’re enjoying the course.
I have attended the first of 6 sessions with Deana and I am completely hooked. I was nervous about how well the zoom would work, nervous about telling someone my writing aspirations, nervous of writing and reading out-loud and receiving feedback and I really didn't need to be. Deana is super friendly and puts you at ease, but still completely professional.
I found that I trusted her judgement straight away, I learnt things about my own writing style within half an hour and somehow I already feel more confident. I have yearned to write a novel for years and right now, I genuinely think that could be possible. If you are at all curious, take that leap, you won't regret it.
Thank you so much for your lovely review. So happy you like the course. I hope by the end of it you feel equipped to tackle a novel. I’m sure you can do it.
I attended one of Deana's first courses and with some simple guidance, and practice, can now write with confidence and flair (Deana's words!). I got a lot more out of the course than I ever expected to and have since sent Deana not only friends and family members, but also colleagues from my employers Marketing & Communications Dept : our articles and press releases are now a lot more interesting to read. Thanks Deana.
Thank you, John. I'm very pleased you enjoyed the course and got so much out of it. I hope you're carrying on with your writing.
I was really impressed with my first session and am definitely looking forward to the next.
Deana was incredibly friendly and supportive and her advice was invaluable. She gave me lots to think about, and ideas to help me move my writing on to the next step. In fact as soon as the session finished I couldn’t stop, and she certainly helped inspire me and help me over my feeling of writer’s block.
Deana seems incredibly experienced and was thoroughly professional and helpful at all times. Communication has been excellent!
I would recommend these sessions to any curious writers, of any experience, without reservation.
Thank you! I’m so happy you enjoyed the first session.
