My name is Deana Luchia and I teach fun, practical and informative creative writing classes and workshops to everyone from absolute beginners to published authors. A published author, journalist, editor and novel coach, I have an M.A. in Professional Writing and have been teaching creative writing for over ten years. If you've never written before, try the Beginner's Course where you will learn about character building, setting, dialogue and tone. If you have an idea of what type of book or story you want to write, you can choose a genre course focusing on crime, picture books, sci-fi, romance, comedy, memoir, non-fiction, etc. If there are specific topics you want to focus on, eg: creating strong protagonists, writing realistic arguments, plot twists, sub-plots or descriptive language, you can create a bespoke course from over 300 different workshops that cover every aspect of writing fiction, non-fiction, poetry and screenplays. Each course costs £120 per person. This includes four hours of live, one-to-one tuition over Zoom, notes and feedback on assignments. You can choose to do the four sessions in a day, a week or spread them out at your own pace. I recommend having one session per week, over a month. Please contact me if you have any questions about my course or would like more information.

What's included in the price?

Four 1-hour sessions of live on-line, one-to-one tuition. Emailed course notes. Feedback on assignments.
