Gratitude turns what we have into enough
Spending the day in the company of veteran story-maker Jans Rautenbach and music-maker Riku Lätti, and other creative minds during a masterclass for storytellers was a soulful experience and reckoning for most writers who attended. “Be a dreamer. Dream! And write your story!” was a message that everyone took home with them, ready to write with an enlightened spirit and a renewed passion.
If you want to write in your own space and at your own pace, we have 8 motivational and inspirational correspondence courses that are specifically designed to make it easier for storytellers who would like to master the craft of writing and conquer the creative process.
The Festive Season is here and we’re giving writers a ‘gift of motivation to write their stories’ with an incredible 50% discount on our correspondence courses, valid until November 30, 2015.
Our workshop for playwrights is ideal for writers (and actors) who want to make a difference in the local theatre scene, and cultivate the growth of new South African plays and takes place at the Waterfront Theatre School from December 1 to 4 from 6pm until 9pm.
Our next workshop for screenwriters will take place on Tuesday evenings from 5.30pm to 8.30pm on January 5, 12, 19 and 26 at The Waterfront Theatre School, Port Rd, Cape Town City Centre.

If you have completed the draft of a screenplay, or short film, stageplay, or manuscript for a novel, it is vital to find out whether or not it works. We offer professional reading and evaluation of screenplays and manuscripts.
In an age where everyone makes regular trips to their local gym to stay healthy, it is important for writers to keep writing effectively and remain in a perfect state of creative health; where ideas flow freely and projects are completed.
