What better thing to do in social isolation than start writing the book you’ve always wanted to? Well, in this one-on-one writing workshop, you can get stuck into doing just that!

As your personal writing 'whisperer', your teacher Dan Allen will help you organise and focus your ideas in a unique, individualised session - specially tailored just for you. Whether you’re new to writing or a seasoned pro, we’ll explore a writing plan for you, plus brainstorm ideas and practical 'take-away' techniques to help you create and publish your masterpiece.

You will learn how to write what you’ve always dreamed of, whether that is:

  • Fiction to non-fiction
  • Suspense to Rom-Coms
  • Autobiography to Sci-Fi/Fantasy
  • Children’s Literature to Cookbooks
  • Poetry, Art & Travel Books
  • PhD Theses & Academic Textbooks
  • College Entrance Essays

Tangible outcomes include a personalised writing process & schedule for your style & genre, plot arcs & outlines, book title & summary, character development, chapter structure & titles, cover artwork & layout design, motivational methods, confidence building and much more…

Plus, tips for Traditional, Hybrid & Self-publishing on Amazon, including eBooks & AudioBooks, and promotion/public speaking & sales techniques.

Dan Allen has published several books, and guest lectured at numerous universities and will help guide you in this workshop to achieve your writing goals.

Groups are more than welcome if you are all working on the same writing project. Dan has run sessions with editors, writers, publishers, couples, families, etc. Please get in contact to create a special session for your group.

I’m a bestselling author, who has published a few books on topics ranging from salsa dancing to Brasilian music & percussion to life enrichment & autism. I’ve also taught college classes on writing and publishing. In addition, I play music and teach ukulele, and body percussion as well...

I love helping people follow their dreams to write (and publish) their own books, and am looking forward to working with you to achieve your literary goals.

Really good experience, Dan came into it with a lot of enthusiasm, ideas and experience which have really helped me focus on how to progress my book. It's a hard time to concentrate and focus, but I'm confident with Dan's advice that I can really take some big steps forward.
