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. So I spent months and months researching, reading, and learning by trial and error to make the switch from medic to scribe.
I developed the six week course, Write Better, Right Now, to explain the process that I had learned. But I then realised that skills are not enough. People need a boost. A refresher. A powerful hand to provide valuable feedback, develop skills and inject fresh energy.
And that's what The Writing Boost is all about.
And it's yours for the taking! Come and join us!

- build your confidence the RIGHT way, through improving your work

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 4 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 one critique 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. 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?
Oh yes. You will learn about how to manage your energy and keep on writing. If you've read this far, then you need help with that, right?!
Send across an email if you're not sure. We'd be happy to answer your questions.
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.
