Writers Do Laundry Too + south africa literature

All About Writing's August/ September Creative Writing Courses (Johannesburg, South Africa)

Date: 22 and 25 August 2012

Our next flagship face-to-face course starts on Wednesday, August 22 at our new venue in Craighall Park, Johannesburg. We’re offering participants, as usual, the full range of writing skills, plus a hefty dose of motivation and encouragement. Numbers are limited, the booking generally furious, so call soon for your place on the course.

On Monday, September 3, we’re launching our first one-week Creative Writing course. This will consist of the regular programme structured over five days, from 9am to 4pm, with a fine lunch in the middle. We’ve devised the new format for two reasons. We’ve been getting increasing number of queries from potential participants who prefer not to come out at night, and who have the time (or are happy to take a few days leave) to attend sessions during the day. On the other hand, we wonder whether the creative momentum we can generate over the five days won’t serve writers more effectively than the 10-week format does.

Whichever course you choose to attend, we can guarantee an exhilarating experience that’ll sharpen your creative skills, expand your writing horizons, and – in the words of many of past participants – quite possible change your life, forever!


For those of you who haven’t dipped your toes into creative writing waters, we offer a one-day introduction face-to-face in Johannesburg or a four module version online. We highlight essential skills, and coax participants through a series of writing exercises that will open their eyes to their own capacities. It’s always fun, and often much more than that. The next face-to-face Power of Writing course will be held in Johannesburg on Saturday 25 August.
