Whether you want to be a bestselling novelist, write a memoir that persuades your family that you weren’t born a parent, or are a student thinking of embarking on a writing course Back to Creative Writing School offers practical inspiration. It encourages writers and would-be writers to play with language, write with their senses and create three dimensional characters that walk off the page.

Praise for Back to CREATIVE WRITING School

“From magical realism, to how to write funny, to horror, to crafting compelling description there’s something for everyone in this fun and thought provoking creative writing book. Bridget has a lovely breezy, chatty style that makes it a real pleasure to read. Whether you’re a novice or a published writer the exercises in this book will educate, inspire and delight you. Guaranteed to beat writers’ block!”
Cally Taylor, author of Heaven Can Wait and Home for Christmas

This fantastic, down to earth, imaginative and brilliantly organised programme of exercises and explanations will give enormous inspiration to anyone who has ever wondered about whether they could write. It is also full of great ideas for those of us with a little more experience behind us, and an invaluable resource for creative writing teachers. In other words, watch out, Bridget, I’m nicking your ideas…
Julia Crouch, author of Cuckoo, Every Vow You Break and Tarnished

“If you want to get down to writing – or back to writing – but are struggling to get started, then this book is for you. Full of inspiring, stimulating exercises that will turn your writers’ block into writers’ flood – as your ideas pour onto the page! Bridget’s warmth and experience shine on every page, it really feels as though you have the best kind of supportive teacher by your side, spurring you on and sharing her own wisdom. Recommended for new writers, and for old hands seeking new inspiration.”
Kate Harrison, author of The Secret Shopper, Boot Camp and The 5:2 Diet Book

“It’s packed full of so many fascinating snippets and observations that it’s more than a writer’s handbook – it’s a book which anyone could read and if they did they would probably find their pleasure in words and the world heightened.”
Lizzie Enfield, author of What You Don’t Know and Uncoupled

“Inspiring, insightful and fun – this easy-to-read guide explores what makes a good story and is packed with exercises to kick start your creativity. An indispensable tool for anyone wanting to write fiction, I highly recommend going back to school with Bridget.”
Sarah Rayner, author of One Moment, One Morning

“Bridget Whelan is an outstanding creative writing tutor and mentor, and teaches adults of all ages and abilities to kick start their creative writing talents. Having seen her classes first hand, I can recommend her as an amazing teacher. When it comes to creative writing, Bridget offers warm, reassuring and knowledgeable advice, and can help turn your writing into bestseller material.”
Susanna Quinn, author of The Glass Geisha and I Take this Woman

I’ve had a lot of support and encouragement from many friends, writing colleagues, students and readers and I want to thank you all…and ask another favour. It would be wonderful if you could  spread the word and share this post on facebook.

    Are they the best six words in the English language? Right now they are. Thank you Simone – know you’ve been a keen follower of my weekly creative writing exercises. Here’s a year’s worth (with time off for holidays).

    Wow got it at last without a Kindle. Downloading the ‘free kindle’ app for a PC was for me a bit fiddly, I felt like a ‘bear of very little brain’ like Pooh but cracked it in the end.So if I can do it anyone can! Quick glance through and it’s brill, well done.oh and passed on to two writer’s groups. x
