Over the years I have tried a variety of learning methods in order to improve my writing skills and knowledge. They range in price from, well, nothing, to more than £1000 and I admit that can seem rather steep. But how effective are they and which provide the best value for money? In this blog I will give you my lowdown on seven different ways to learn. The costs I have used are based on my own experience living in Europe but can vary widely.
SEVEN OF THE BEST WAYS TO LEARN TO BE A BETTER WRITER
1) FREE – Join an online writers’ circle.
3) £10-20 – Go to hear a writer speak at a literary conference
6) £250-£500 – Attend a weekend workshop.
