The Big Writing Club

Want to write a novel? Need support, advice, inspiration as you learn how to do this? Want to join a community of like-minded writers? Join The Big Writing Club!

What is The Big Writing Club?

  • An online club for writers where you set daily, weekly and monthly writing deadlines. Your writing will be developed and supported by a constant feed of inspiration and guidance, along with two conference calls a month with top coach Suzy Greaves and award-winning novelist and journalist Caroline Green.

Is this the best writing course for you?

  • Do you want to write a novel?
  • Do you want support, advice, inspiration as you learn how to do this?
  • Do you want to join a community of like-minded writers?
  • Do you want an affordable way to learn how to write a book from the comfort of your own home?
  • The Big Writing Club meets twice a month to talk together about your progress and to receive coaching and support from Suzy Greaves, top coach and editor of Psychologies (how to keep going when you feel like giving in) and to receive guidance and writing techniques from Caroline Green, award-winning novelist and journalist.

And no matter what your budget or experience, you can join us and make your writing dreams happen.

My dream was always to become a professional writer. And despite being turned down by journalism school because I couldn’t spell I went on to be a prolific freelance journalist and health editor of two national magazines – and now editor of Psychologies magazine.
After becoming a life coach in 2000, I then went on to write three books – one which was rejected by the publisher on submission (I had to pay back the advance which I had spent!) and two which have gone on to be steady best sellers, translated into four languages!
My next creative challenge is to finish my novel and screenplay. My own challenges in writing fiction inspired me to create this club.

I’m learning that writing success happens when you:

  1. Take daily consistent action and write every day.
  2. Have daily inspiration.
  3. Have weekly encouragement (“yes, keep going!”).
  4. Have constructive feedback along the way (‘This is great, change this, write more about that.’)
  5. Learn the scientific methods to increase your creativity by ten fold (yes, we are all creative but there are scientific methods that enable you to build your creative muscles to super creativity mode!)
  6. Have writing buddies/groups that inspire and support you along the way.

What you are signing up for:

  • Two writing classes on first and last Tuesday of the month GMT 8pm* facilitated by Suzy Greaves and/or Caroline Green via conference call. Join us twice a month (wherever you live in the world) to talk through your writing goals, challenges and share your writing success. *All recorded if you can’t make it and you get to access all the previous recordings and masterclasses with writing experts.
  • A commitment to daily and weekly writing goals.
  • An invitation to take part in the Artist’s Way – the three months life changing creativity course written by Julia Cameron, facilitated by Suzy Greaves.
  • Online journaling which links you to the Big Writing Club members where you can share your journey.

How much will it cost?

I know that as an aspiring writer, you may be writing in your spare time until a time comes when you can support yourself through your writing.

The Big Writing Club comes with a high value but low-cost tag.

Just £19 a month.
