About the Course
Have you always wanted to write but have no idea where to start? Would you like to rekindle your love of writing? Are you looking for a group activity with a difference?
My name is Deana Luchia and I run fun and practical workshops for all writing abilities. Whether you can commit to an hour a week (for six weeks), a whole day's workshop (six hours), or anything in-between, there is a workshop perfectly suited for you.
Whatever course you decide to take you will learn how to create authentic characters and describe a variety of settings, devise intriguing plots and get to grips with dialogue, and you will have a go at writing in different styles and genres.
The workshops are very hands-on with lots to write in each session. (Some courses involve homework).
Most courses take place in Highams Park (near Chingford) but can be held at a venue convenient for you. (I also run half-day workshops for you and your friends at your home or workplace).
Courses 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 (Happy as Harry, published by Headline Home) and journalist and have worked in print media for over twenty-five years.
The price listed is per person for a typical six-hour course. One-to-one courses can also be accommodated but will be slightly more expensive.

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.
