Brisbane Writing Classes

Home > Brisbane > Courses
Published January 3rd 2011
Fancy yourself an undiscovered Dostoyevsky, Steinbeck or Rowlings? Becoming a successful, published author takes time, patience and discipline. Foster your passion by undertaking a writing course or workshop, where you will receive invaluable advice, instruction and feedback from your teacher and fellow classmates.

Brisbane North Institute of TAFE provides a variety of short courses in various areas of writing, like novel writing, script writing and short story writing. Each unit takes about six months to complete. Some courses can be undertaken online while others require attendance at campuses at Bracken Ridge, Caboolture, Eagle Farm, Ithaca, Redcliffe and South Brisbane.

Serious writers should consider becoming a member of the Queensland Writers Centre. The QWC is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to assist writers by providing advisory publications (such as the Australian Writers Marketplace, a guide to getting published in Australia), programs and other projects for writers. Membership is $60 for a full year (or $110 for two years) and includes a monthly copy of WQ magazine and access to the online members directory.

The Queensland Writers Centre host several workshops and seminars throughout the year; see the 2011 program here. Members receive a discount.

Genre writers might also like to join an appropriate writers groups such as Crime Writers Queensland or Vision Writers Group for science fiction, horror and fantasy writers.

Whether you're a hobbyist writer or a wannabe best seller, a professional writing course can serve to hone your writing skills.

I'm 15 years old and interested in becoming a tv scriptwriter. What course would be best for me after high school. I live in Australia and am interested in studying in either Brisbane or Townsville. But other places are good too(:
