Deep Dive

New Year, New Writer

Have you fallen out of love with writing? Do you long to write a novel, finish the novel you started, get an agent, get published? Do you feel stuck, convinced you’ve lost your writing mojo, you can’t face any more rejection, can’t bear to look at your novel or any edits needed, or get stuck into anything new? 

Don’t panic! We have the perfect online webinar course for you – and you don’t even need to leave your study!

Led by Jill Dawson, author of eleven award-winning novels, and renowned writing mentor, who has an extraordinary track record in nurturing and discovering new writers and helping them find publication. Her work as a writing mentor for Gold Dust has seen her inspire many new writers to finish their novels and fulfil their writing goals.

Ex-Children’s laureate and best-selling author Malorie Blackman says of Jill: ‘The very first person to publish me. Jill published one of my short stories in an anthology. Thanks @JDawsonwriter. This woman knows her stuff and writes amazing books.’

Author Emma Darwin comments: ‘What Jill Dawson has to say on any of these topics would be super-worth listening to!’ Harpers Bazaar describes Jill as ‘one of the top creative writing tutors in the world.’ And alongside that – your chance to put your questions to a top literary agent!
