THIS CHALLENGE IS FULL! Please go to "Courses" in the menu to search upcoming challenges.

Join us for a self-paced, fun and engaging week of writing challenge to get your creative juices flowing. We'll start the week by setting goals, carving out our writing times, addressing potential obstacles we might encounter and making a commitment to meet the challenges of the week.

Every day, writers will be given a new task or writing assignment and some tips and tricks related to Getting Started. Sometimes, the greatest challenge a writer faces is simply starting! From there, we'll engage and interact with each other on our successes, struggles, strategies.

We'll end the week with an online check-in and an opportunity to share some of the writing we've created and help each other plot ways to keep writing long after the course has ended.

Ready for a writing challenge? Enrol now!

"I thoroughly enjoyed my first course with Writerscape. It helped me recommit to my writing and, at the same time, provided the information I needed in a fun, no pressure environment. I have taken other writing courses, including university, but this crystallized the elements of writing for me in a less complicated way."

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
This course begins on Sunday, July 12, 2020 and finishes on July 19, 2020.
How long do I have access to the course?
Access to this course and its content continues for 7 days after the course ends.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, you can contact us for a refund within the first 48 hours of the course. In this case, that means by end of day (11:59pm EDT) on July 14, 2020.
Do I have to be online at certain times of the day?
No! While we will be interacting with our fellow writing campers, it'll be on a forum where you can post when you have the time. This will allow people in different time zones to take part without us losing our collective flow.
Is this course just for fiction writers?
No! Our goal for the course is more about committing to the act of writing itself. It could work for non-fiction writers, poets, script or play writers. Anyone hoping to write!
Will I receive personal feedback on the stuff I write?
There is no feedback or evaluative element to this course. We will find ways to allow students to share work with each other if they wish, but the instructor will not be reading or providing feedback on the writing you complete over the course of the week. The goal of the course is not to write high quality, polished work. It's more about actually writing... sitting down and putting the pen to the page or the fingers to the keyboard. Writerscape is currently examining ways to help students who do want personal feedback on their writing. More on that to come!

This course is closed for enrollment.
