What previous students say:

Bryan M Richards

"The best Internet course that I’ve taken. "

Write Here, Right Now is the best Internet course that I’ve taken. Period. I saw immediate improvements in my writing. The lessons are very practical. Each day I was able to incorporate what I learned into my freelance writing. As an instructor, Abigail was also easily available to answer any questions I had along the way. I truly felt like I had a mentor walking beside me.

Hi there! Today, I'm a full time writer with a published book, articles published by the likes of National Geographic Traveler and a travel blog that Lonely Planet called "one of the best in the world." 

But that wasn't always the case. 

Ten years ago, when I switched from being a hospital doctor to an aspiring writer with big dreams but no blueprint I wasn't sure where to begin. 

This six week course distills the basics of good writing and represents the months and months of research, reading, and trial and error that helped me make the switch from medic to scribe.

It's the base, the building blocks, the foundations on which to build a writing career, a blogging career or just to make the writing you have to do for work less painful.

And it's yours for the taking! Come and join us!

What editors say...

Seb Neylan Lonely Planet

"Conducts herself professionally and is immensely reliable."

Abi conducts herself professionally and is immensely reliable. Most importantly, the content she produces is top notch. Whether it’s social content on Twitter, live video content on Periscope or well-written article pieces and blog posts on LonelyPlanet.com. Other members of the Lonely Planet Online Editorial & Community team would echo these sentiments. Beyond all this, though, she’s affable and a pleasure to deal with – which is always a big plus!
