Creative Writing School

We're the only literary agency to run our own creative writing school...

Curtis Brown Creative is the UK’s only agent-led creative writing school, launched in May 2011 as a way of reaching out to new writers, helping them to write their best and get smart about the industry.

We have always worked closely with our clients to help them develop and edit their work. The writing school lets us help writers at a much earlier stage of the process, sharing inside knowledge to help students get ahead of the slush pile - a number of Curtis Brown Creative students have gone on to secure book deals with major publishers since its launch.

Our writing courses will feature writing workshops, dedicated industry advice, and one-on-one tutorials. The courses also features special guest speakers and tutors from the worlds of novel-writing and publishing, appearing alongside literary agents from Curtis Brown and sister agency Conville & Walsh. Past guests have included David Nicholls, Jojo Moyes, Rosamund Lupton, Jeffrey Archer, Tracy Chevalier, Tony Parsons, Jonathan Freedland and Jane Harris.
