After the Course

Join our Alumni Area

After finishing your course, stay in touch with fellow writers in our online alumni community, for ongoing support and inspiration as you continue to explore and develop your work. You can revisit your course materials, keep working in a private area with your classmates, join monthly live events with authors, editors and agents, and network with our wider writing community. There’s no cost for this.

Dedicated Agent Pitch Space

Agents are invited to access an exclusive online pitching forum for our alumni, where you can upload a book proposal and query letter for review. New agents are invited quarterly.

Monthly Guest Q&As

Each month we invite a guest for a live Q&A Zoom session open to all alumni. Previous guests include authors Emmanuel Iduma, Jennifer Kabat, John Connell and Tom Bullough, alongside editors and literary agents.

Free submission to the Magazine

All our alumni enjoy an exclusive Submittable link to submit work to the magazine for free.
