Professional Writing: Courses, Resources, Mentors

Want to make a living through writing? 

Thought of approaching an agent or publisher but don't know how?  

Need a mentor?

Well, we found a place you might want to check out. is an online network for writers looking to brush up their skills, showcase work and have it critiqued by peers and experts. Their expertise has grown out of MA Professional Writing, which they run at University College Falmouth – check out their full and part-time courses; there's more info here.

They have more than just courses though. There's a Members Room where you can pitch ideas and browse a job board. They can pair you with a Mentor or you can submit your work for a Peer Review and they run a monthly short fiction and nonfiction competition called Bloc.
