I'm Vanessa, writing retreat host and author of three novels - The Florentine Bridge, The Memories of Us, and My Life for Yours.
I'm also the creator of The Little Writing School, an online suite of writing programs for aspiring and emerging writers.
Goal-setting, working with self-doubt, and getting organised so you can finish what you start.
Personalised support through coaching or mentoring.
Enrolments open in December and July.
In the meantime, join the list to stay updated on news and offers throughout the year.
Each semester, three writers will be awarded a scholarship allowing them entry into The Little Writing School's Write Your Novel program. This scholarship is open to Indigenous Australian writers, writers with a disability and writers who have been negatively impacted by COVID-19.
Applications re-open February 2020 for program commencement in March 2021.
Each semester, writers enrolled in the Write Your Novel program will have the chance to apply for The Little Writing School Residency. Writers will need to submit the first chapter of their novel for consideration. The residency is strictly for one writer, to be taken within dates specified. Due to COVID-19, it is likely that dates for the residency will be set for 2021. The residency covers a three-night stay in a property located on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. Transport and meals are not included.
