This course is perfect for starting writers.
In 8 weekly lessons of 2 hours each, we tackle subjects such as character building, dialogue, and how to strengthen your story. In a small group of like-minded people, you benefit from their feedback; where does your story become unclear or too long? You develop your writing muscles and grow into a true storyteller while meeting friendly creatives. You can contact me here to sign up (see more details below at FAQ).
Have you already done a writing course in the past and want to boost your skills? Have you done my beginners course and want to continue? Then this is the perfect place for you. This course leads to two short stories and teaches you more about structure, plotting, and creative content. The feedback and support from the others are extremely beneficial, and often, students form little writing groups afterwards. Are you interested in joining the next one? You can contact me here to sign up (see more details below at FAQ).
If you did my first two courses or you have a good amount of writing skills, this is your next step. The focus is on writing and less on theory. I believe learning to write is not linear and everyone has strong and weak points they can continue to develop. All you need is a framework of classes and a creative crew to stimulate you. Their feedback, input, and flaws serve as a huge catapult for your own creative development. For this group, I make sure everyone is on the same page before signing up. You can contact me here to find out more or scroll down for details.

As I like to keep my classes small and personal, I take max. six students per course. Both the intermediate and the beginner’s courses for September have six people signed up. You can message me if you want to be put on the waiting list or want to know about the January sessions.
I have you covered. You will receive a summary
and the homework, so you can catch up. Additionally, you can always call me for details. Many of my students miss at least one class per course.
A notebook and pen/pencil is all you need! I send additional information once you have signed up, in case you need more.
Yes, but as many people aren’t Native English, we don’t put all our focus on grammar. Writing strong content is more important for now. I do advise using Grammarly for better spelling.
Helaas geef ik zelf geen les in het Nederlands omdat ik hier simpelweg niet genoeg aanmeldingen voor krijg. Wel kun je hier kijken voor goed opgeleide scrijfdocenten en hun aanbod in het hele land.
Sure! Just send me all the details, such as (company)name, address and anything else you want on there, and I will send it your way.
