Due to popular demand, the KYD Writers Workshop is delighted to launch its first online workshop curated by Hannah Kent (author of bestselling novels Burial Rites and The Good People) and Rebecca Starford (author of memoir Bad Behaviour)

‘So You Want to Write’ is a workshop designed to instil confidence in writers and to give them a renewed understanding of what is required to begin, continue or complete a writing project. Participants will come away with strategies to manage tendencies towards procrastination and self-doubt, and suggestions to assist and encourage creativity.

Through a series of dynamic writing exercises, personal feedback and key insights into the creative practice, this workshop will assist you in developing techniques to keep you motivated, disciplined in the lonely hours at your desk, and able to maintain a healthy and productive relationship with your writing. The course will take you 4–5 hours to complete, but can also be accomplished in short stages at your convenience.

And from now until 24 December, ‘So You Want to Write’ is on sale for the special price of $99. And KYD members receive a 10% discount! It’s the perfect gift for that writerly friend or loved one – or you could just keep it for yourself? Go on, you know you want to!
