Creative writing workshops, courses and coaching
Hi, I’m Alison Powell and I run WriteClub. I offer workshops, writing groups and courses where everyone is welcome - no matter whether you have 57 novels to your name, or you haven’t written more than a shopping list in the past decade.
I’m absolutely passionate about the power of the written word to heal (having experienced it first-hand!) and believe that everyone has a story worth telling.
I provide a safe space both online and face-to-face where you’ll be supported to take small steps towards your writing goals. I aim to stretch and inspire you and to welcome you and your words into the ever-growing community of fabulous humans that make up WriteClub.
"Alison Powell is a writer’s dream, a reader who sees your story before you do, an editor with an ear for the rhythm of prose. Her notes helped me carve out the opening for Fire Boy, the novel that helped me find an agent and publisher. Her classes are a godsend for any writer looking for help and inspiration."
Story Structure 101
A half-day online masterclass to help you get your head around narrative structure. Learn to shape your stories so you can craft fantastic memoir and fiction without losing the plot.
"I thoroughly recommend WriteClub to writers of every kind, whether fiction, non-fiction or poetry. My children’s novel, School for Nobodies, was immensely improved in the WriteClub sessions – and found both an agent and a publisher. Alison creates a positive, uplifting and generous environment for writers at every stage of their craft."
