ONLINE Writer Training Session: How to get writing and keep writing (Sept 2023)

with William Gallagher

Monday 25 September 2023, 7-9pm

via Zoom online meeting


This 2-hour online workshop will teach you in a practical way how to make sure you make the most of the writing time you have, and keep your motivation.

It doesn’t matter that you didn’t write yesterday. It doesn’t matter that you haven’t touched your book in a year. All that matters is today, tomorrow, and what you can write now.

This is not about making you somehow write faster, but it is about getting you writing –– and showing you how to make more time to write. See what’s holding you back or holding you up, and then find out how to juggle everything.

You’ll learn how to treat your writing, your other work and your home life so that at those times when you’re at your most creative, you can focus on the writing you need to do.

This workshop shows you how to take your writing seriously and get more written.



William Gallagher has been teaching creative productivity to writers, authors, musicians, actors and journalists for over five years. He’s the author of 18 books including ones for the British Film Institute and Radio Times, plus four best-selling technology titles and many Doctor Who audio dramas.


The workshop will take place online via Zoom Online Meeting software. It is free to download and you will only need the free version to attend. Please download it and check it is working before the day of the workshop.

Please try and be somewhere you can concentrate and won’t be interrupted. Headphones can be useful if you have some, to cut out other noise.


Short courses 2022/23:

We are running a mix of short courses and workshops online and in person, so you can choose to attend the session you are the most comfortable with.

All our short courses and workshops are priced at £15 per taught hour.

We understand that not all writers are able to pay for their writing courses to further their career, and we run a Bursary Scheme as a consequence. If you feel you need a bursary, please contact us:


Please note: you must sign up for the full course even if you cannot attend all dates. No partial course ticket is available.

Short Courses are for over 18s. If you are a young writer, you can sign up for our Spark Young Writers Programme.

All Writing West Midlands short courses are collaborative, and you will learn as much from your fellow course attendees as from the tutor. You will be expected to play an active role in group tasks, and you will also have time to reflect on your own writing during sessions.

Course handouts are sometimes (but not always) available, and notes may be available in advance upon request. If you have any additional needs, please contact Writing West Midlands in advance of the course starting and we will try to assist you.
