Creative Writing classes, one-to-one tuition, via Zoom.



There's lots to learn in this 1:1, live online, creative writing course.
Prepare to have your imagination sparked as you achieve your writing goals.
Whether you're an absolute beginner, or have been writing for years, my courses will inform and inspire you.
Courses are tailor-made to suit your needs. Whilst a beginner's course looks at character building, dialogue, scene setting, tone and descriptive language, you could, instead, focus on: Picture Books, Early Reader Fiction, Middle Grade Fiction, YA Fiction, Memoir Writing, or a specific genre. You can also create a bespoke course from over 150 topics.
My writing courses make a unique gift with recipients learning skills they can use long after the course has been completed.
Friendly, practical and fun, courses are held live on-line using Zoom or WhatsApp and consist of four one-hour sessions that you can take at your own pace, over several weeks, or, if you prefer, complete in one week or even day!
Each course costs £100 per person. This includes four hours of live on-line one-to-one tuition, emailed notes and feedback on homework.
I am a published author, journalist, editor and novel coach, with an M.A. in Professional Writing.
Please contact me if you have any questions about this course. I look forward to hearing from you.
Let's write!

Many thanks for the new knowledge, tips and confidence that your course has given me. You're a warm, friendly and supportive teacher and the flexibility with which you structured and scheduled each session around my needs made the course fun, useful and really relevant for me. I feel able to go on now with the novel that I'd given up on, and that's all thanks to you!
Very best wishes to you and yours, Tessa.

Response from Deana Luchia:

Thank you so much, Tessa. I’m so pleased you enjoyed the course and found it useful. I’d love to read your novel when it’s finished so keep going!

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!

Marcus Leaning - - #31853

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.

I had all but given up on my dreams of becoming a writer, but doing this course inspired me to pick up a pen (well, keyboard) and start trying again. Deana is a skilled and experienced teacher, who offers a positive and comfortable environment for you to explore your creative ideas. Beforehand, I thought that one-to-one zoom sessions might be awkward, but it was relaxed and fun. As with any creative writing course, you will get out what you put in, and there is enough structure and practical guidance to help develop your work, but lots of practical opportunities to explore your own style. I would highly recommend this course for writers at any level of experience - I'm certainly glad I did it.

Response from Deana Luchia:

Bonnie, thank you! I'm so happy you enjoyed the course.

Abdul Hafez - - #29951

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!

Response from Deana Luchia:

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!

Response from Deana Luchia:

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.

Response from Deana Luchia:

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.

John Marios - - #29919

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.

Response from Deana Luchia:

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.

Jo Watkinson - - #29917

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.

Response from Deana Luchia:

Thank you! I’m so happy you enjoyed the first session.

I really enjoy Deana's classes. She manages to distil a lot of really useful information and tips, into clear nuggets of advice, in a short space of time. As well as being fun, I find the classes give me lots of food for thought that I can put into practice in my writing. Thank you Deana!

Response from Deana Luchia:

Thank you so much. Glad you're enjoying the sessions.

I have been on a number of writing courses and must say that Deana's classes have been the best out of all of them. She is very knowledgable and insightful - also positive and encouraging. I have felt really inspired by her teaching.

Having thoroughly enjoyed the beginner's course, I wanted to step even further outside my writing comfort zone and so embarked on the follow-on course which is both thought provoking and tremendous fun. I completely recommend it.

I attended the creative writing course recently and I absolutely loved it.
Although I've always been interested in writing I've lacked the confidence and proper skills.
But now after Deana's great teaching and endless encouragement, I feel set and ready to go.
The course was excellent and just what I needed.

I'm so pleased I joined Deana's brilliant creative writing course. The workshop was fun, informative and well paced. With her knowledge, skills and delightful manner she steered us through the course, working with everyone in such an enjoyable and relaxed atmosphere. It ticked all the boxes for me and I have no hesitation in recommending Deana's writing workshop to any budding writer.
