Australian Writers' Centre - Online courses

If you can read this webpage, then you have all you need to access our range of online courses at the Australian Writers’ Centre! We offer two kinds of online course:

Online classroom: These courses begin on a set date, with an online tutor and other classmates learning at the same time. You’ll need around 2-3 hours per week, but those hours can be whenever and wherever you choose.

Online self-paced: These courses are ready to go ‘on demand’. You don’t have a tutor but you do get instant access and can revisit the content for up to 12 months.
