Welcome to the NSCC Sampler box - a collection of 45 minute classes.

Have you been thinking about trying Creative Writing? Think you’ve got a book or blog in you, but you’re not sure how to begin? Meet our tutor, Janet, get writing tips and an intro to the full course!

**Limited places are available due to COVID restrictions: this class is open to students who have not taken a writing class with us before! 

What's been said about Janet's writing courses:

“I hung on every word Janet said... She has a penetrating intellect and a generous nature. The wealth of information she provided was like getting a mini masters degree on the subject.”

“Janet is a ‘live wire’ and kept everyone interested all the time.”

**During COVID: on-site students are asked to assist their tutor in a post-class clean down of the room & equipment used. At NSCC we are working together to ensure the safety of our entire community.

Janet is an award-winning novelist, short story writer, reviewer, essayist and poet who has an MA in Writing and has been teaching creative writing for more than 15 years. Her short stories (general fiction, romance, science-fiction) have appeared in various magazines and newspapers (eg. Woman’s Day, The West Australian) and her novel ‘Only Myself’ was published by HarperCollins. Janet studied English & Communication (BA), Librarianship (DipLib) and Writing (MA) at university, as well as script - writing at the AFTRS, and spent many years working in library management, public relations and corporate communications (including speech - writing) before turning to fiction and teaching. Janet runs her courses, seminars and workshops independently as well as through libraries and community centres and as an occasional guest presenter at universities. She was born in the UK, spent her adolescence in NZ, and, following a period of travelling the world, moved to Australia in 1989. Apart from books and writing, Janet’s other passions include the arts, wildlife and conservation, travel and gardening. She divides her time between Sydney and the Blue Mountains where she currently lives and where the play and novel she is writing are set.
