ONLINE Writer Training Session: Productivity for Writers (October 2022)

with William Gallagher

Monday 31 October 2022, 7pm – 9pm

Online via Zoom


You didn’t become a writer hoping there would be lots of admin and meetings. Yet that admin and the dealing with other people is taking up so much of your time that you’re not getting to do the work you really want.

Even if you were able to solely spend your time writing, writers have to do so much and so many different things, that it feels like we’re not getting anything finished, not getting to move forward.


In this workshop, you’ll see how you make all of that just vanish – but you can make the admin and all other non-writing parts of your work faster and easier. Plus ways of getting the right thing done so that you do progress and you are seen as the writer that producers should turn to.



William Gallagher is a writer of prose and scripts. He’s Deputy Chair of the Writers’ Guild, writes Doctor Who radio dramas and is the author of 19 non-fiction books including the British Film Institute’s BFI TV Classics: The Beiderbecke Affair. His first collection of short stories is due to be published in 2023.



The workshop will take place on Zoom.


Short courses 2022:

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.
