Have you always wanted to write but don't know where to start? Would you like to rekindle your love of writing? Or spend a session working on improving your dialogue, characters or settings? How about taking a class on genre fiction or getting to grips with poetry?
My name is Deana Luchia and I teach creative writing workshops that will spark your imagination and help you achieve your creative 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 on-line and can be done in small groups (using Zoom or WhatsApp) or on a one-to-one basis.
You can take a beginner's course (six sessions), a follow on course (also six sessions) or pick just one (or numerous) sessions from over 100 different topics.
The workshops are very hands-on with lots to write in each session and further exercises to do for 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 an author and journalist, and have worked in print media for over twenty-five years.
Each session costs £10 per person and includes emailed notes and feedback on homework.

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!
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.
