Writing a book is a big undertaking and it can seem daunting. We’re here to help.

Our Write Away facilitators and mentors have helped hundreds of writers take their concepts from ideas to completion. While it’s important to remember that there’s no one right way to write a book, we at Write Away focus on helping writers develop the skills and confidence they need to write their book their way, to the very best of their ability.

Writing takes inspiration, dedication, and commitment but it also takes an understanding of craft and the elements of good storytelling that can combine to help make you a better storyteller and a better, more confident writer.

We’re here to help you tell your story your way and are pleased to provide these free resources to help point you in the right direction and turn your writing dreams into reality.

Good writing, in any medium or genre, is not just one thing; it’s how you combine all the elements of good writing and good storytelling into a seamless and stunning whole that creates a compelling narrative that will attract and entertain your readers. We’re here to help you break your story down into its component parts so that you can put them together into a project you can be proud of.

Below are some inspirational and informative pieces on elements of craft and creativity to steer you in the right direction, including:
