How amazing to have a brilliant tutorial to watch at a time to suit you; one to refer back to whenever you want. Plus an online community to offer help, support or just company whenever you need it. I wish iWriteFiction had been around when I started out!
Actor & Writer
iWriteFiction is an invaluable part of a young writer's toolkit. Quite apart from masterclasses, discussion boards and advice, its always insisting on its members to write and carry on writing. Even if it's 250 words for a themed challenge or providing the motivation of a competition, iWriteFiction feels like a person at your shoulder telling you to keep writing!
For budding fiction writers like me, iWriteFiction is a unique and invaluable resource – informative and well-presented tutorials, a great online community for sharing ideas and information. I love the Masterclasses – perfectly pitched pieces that reveal the ways writers grab readers’ attention right from the start, and take them on a journey that engages their emotions and maintains the narrative tension.
I feel that 'iwritefiction' is a brilliant way to share and improve on skills through a masterclass and it allows writers to come together to share stories, have discussions and improve on their own work. Competitions are brilliant as both a bit of fun and a way to improve writing and gain a sense of competitiveness which is good in the long run. Overall it is a fun, light-hearted way to share stories as well as being easy to access and enjoy.
Author, poet, playwright, songwriter
What a wonderful resource for writers iWriteFiction is! Yes, you can go away on a tutored retreat for a week or two, or sign up for a series of expert workshops, but these tend to cost quite a lot and it’s not always easy to find the time. And, actually, us writers are a rather private bunch and the idea of being exposed like this for so long is not that appealing.
