Curtis Brown launched its London writing courses in 2011 as a way of reaching out to new novelists, helping them to write their best and get smart about the industry. We run three- and six-month courses in our London offices, and three- and six-month online courses with flexible hours so that writers with restrictive schedules or those in different time zones can take part from all over the world. We’ve also now launched low-priced online ‘taster’ courses for people trying their hand at writing for the first time and people who are not able or ready to take on the greater time and financial commitment required for our longer courses.
