I’m here to help you write the stories you want to write. My online writing courses suit busy people who need to fit their writing around other activities in their lives. I provide course material that offers a lot of choice. Each writing course consists of three foundation modules and four you choose to suit yourself.



Learn how to begin writing poetry, how to work with ideas,

How I Teach

How I Teach

You won’t see a classroom when you join an online writing course of mine. Instead you will experience personalised teaching – when you want it, over the time period you want it, on the topics that interest you. I adapt my teaching to fit your needs.
One-on-one online tutoring and plenty of practice are the best ways to learn to write. I aim to create a precious opportunity for you to practise writing and be supported and encouraged while doing so. Each module has assignments which give you the chance to apply your learning, and all work is assessed and commented on by me, the course creator and tutor.

Progression through the modules is at your own pace.

Through this one–on-one learning I will:

Monitor Progress

Monitor your progress and give you specific feedback

New Things

Provide you with a framework within which you can experiment and
try new things

Needs And Interest

Adapt the pace of the course to your needs and interests

Teach Topics

Teach you the topics you want to learn

The biggest difficulty for ALL writers is confidence. Writing and sharing with others can seem an exposing activity. I am here to support you, encourage you, and to give you confidence.

Manuscript Assessment

Do you have a novel, a memoir, a short story, a picture book, anecdotes based on a life’s good living? And now you are asking, ‘What do I do next?’

I can read your manuscript closely and write a report for you indicating its strengths and how it could reach its potential. I have been a writer and have worked in publishing for more than 20 years. I can assess all genres of writing and my assessments are thorough. Together, we can polish your story till it shines.

My fees are based on the word length of the script you send. For details about rates and availability, please email janice@gowritenow.nz
