What previous students say:
"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.

ABIGAIL KING // WRITER
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...
"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!
SEB NEYLAN // Editor, Lonely Planet
"She makes my job easy as an editor!"
Abigail brings a writerly and stylish voice to her travel pieces for me. Her pieces are well-researched and nicely detailed. She makes my job easy as an editor!
AMY ALIPIO // Editor, National Geographic Traveler
"I would recommend Abigail very highly."
She impressed me greatly with her enthusiasm around the commission and knowledge of the destination. Both pictures and copy were excellent and the article proved one of the most popular in the magazine. She is very easy to work with. I would recommend Abigail very highly.

Frequently Asked Questions
What if I can't finish the course within 6 weeks?
Zero stress! You will have access to the course materials and the Facebook group for at least 12 months.
How much time do I need?
Of course, it varies, but set aside 3-5 hours a week to make the most of it. But you can pace yourself and spread the lessons out over a year.
What makes this different to other writing courses?
There's no fluff. No whimsy. It's full of practical tips that you can actually use right away. This isn't an ivory tower dreaming exercise, it's based on real life work and real life editors. Plus, it's interactive, with a Facebook group where you can chat with other students and your tutor.
The course also includes two critiques of your writing (up to 1000 words.) No other online course I know of does that.
What if I'm not sure? What's your refund policy?
As long as you cancel within seven days, you can get a full refund. By then, you'll have access to three lessons. We feel confident by then you'll be happy to stay! But if you're not, no sweat, no drama. Just let us know within seven days and we'll issue a refund.
I'm happy to say that after hundreds of students, we've never had to to do this, though.
I can't join now. When will you run the course again?
I'll be honest, I'm not sure. It depends on other assignments in my schedule. If you don't want to miss out, it's best to join right now.
What if I'm already a published writer? Will I learn anything new?
To be honest, that depends. This course contains toolkits that you won't find anywhere else. However, Stephen King never took the course and he seemed to manage OK. Send across an email if you're not sure. We'd be happy to answer your questions. Or, you can have a full refund within the first seven days if you think this won't be for you.
What if I don't have a blog? And don't want to be a blogger?
Absolutely no worries. This course is about writing. Where you write doesn't really matter.
Can I pay in instalments?
Not at the moment, sorry. Keep in touch, though, as this may change in the future.
