The Writing Coach was founded in 2005 by the novelist Jacqui Lofthouse. An international mentoring and development organisation, we are also an online home for writers – somewhere you can find advice, information, motivation and most of all encouragement for your writing work.
We are committed to building a diverse community of writers and an inclusive culture.
We offer annual scholarship places in our Literary Community for under-represented writers and we are partners of the Creative Future Writers’ Awards, offering three annual mentoring prizes. Our ‘Get Black on White’ course includes a donation to the homelessness charity SPEAR.
We are a small company who receive no public funding, but we are working to constantly improve the accessibility of our services.
