FAQs

 

Do I have to attend/go online at a certain time?

No. Not at all. We created these courses for busy people. This means that you can log on in your own time, when other pressures are off, and complete the tasks as and when you can.


How much time will the course take?

This varies from indiviual to individual, of course, but on average about five hours per week.


Will I get feedback?

Yes, there is a weekly forum online, where students can discuss the work and the topic at hand, and they tend to give feedback to each other. The teacher also contributes to this forum. Next to this, you will get personalised feedback on your own writing tasks, as you hand them in.

Canberra Writing School (www.canberrawritingschool.com.au)

The Canberra Writing School (CWS) is based in Canberra, the cultural capital of Australia.  The school is administered by www.aussiewriters.com.au. (Note:The legal entity is Kirrily King Publishing.)

We offer a variety of online courses for adults and students, both recreational and career oriented courses, which we have developed over the years.

The CWS was originally established in 2002, and originally offered writing courses to students at senior high school and pre-tertiary levels locally, with its very popular English Preparation courses but has since expanded its offerings.

In 2011 a variety of writing related courses were offered, and the first online courses were launched. These courses are suitable for those who are interested in writing, as either a recreactional pursuit, for education purposes or professionally. The emphasis is on developing writers today and writers for the future.

The courses offered here, mostly fill the gap between rigorous academic courses offered in formal educational settings, and the very casual recreational courses you might find in community colleges.

Our courses are shorter, more condensed, conveniently offered online (for busy people) and (from time to time) offline, and perhaps suiting those who do not seek formal qualifications at this point in time, but instead wish to hone their writing skills.

Our courses are highly creative, unique, interactive, substantial in rigour and comprehensive in their content. (They are not just a series of videos or webinars like other flimsier courses you may come across.)

In short, our aim is to create raving fans and returning students (and we DO get a lot of them) - so you will not only learn a lot through our courses, but you will enjoy the experience!
