I'm Vanessa and I'm happy to welcome you to The Little Writing School, an online writing academy for writers wanting to work on a novel.
I'm the author of The Florentine Bridge and The Memories That Make Us. My third novel, My Life for Yours will be released in August 2020.
I'm also the creator of The Little Writing School and Your Beautiful Writing Life writing retreats held in Tuscany and Australia. In September 2016, I hosted my first sold-out writing retreat in Tuscany and since then I've had the honour of leading seven domestic and international retreats for writers.
I understand that not every writer can physically attend a writing retreat. I decided to create The Little Writing School so I could help more writers work towards their dreams of writing a novel. I've cobbled together the content of my retreat workshops and the knowledge I've gained over the years as a published author to create the programs you will find available here at The Little Writing School.
I love working with like-minded writers and use my skills as a Life Coach to help writers transform their writing lives and become comfortable with pursuing their writing dreams. I have a deep respect for the craft of writing and my approach to writing is one that encompasses writing mindfully.

I’m based in Melbourne, Australia, though I travel to Italy, (my home away from home), as often as I can.
Over the years, my work has been published in and I’ve been featured in magazines, newspapers and online, including publications such as Muse magazine, The Huffington Post, Elephant Journal, The Green Parent (UK), Italy magazine, and more. In 2017 I was a finalist in the Best New Author category for the AusRom Today Readers Choice Awards.
