Whether you write songs, poetry or prose this course will help you find your voice and sharpen your writing techniques.

Classes are super relaxed with a focus on creativity.

We’ll cover the rudiments of creative writing, good editing practices, overcoming writer's block and generating new ideas as well as heaps of other cool bits and pieces.

The class is $200 and numbers are limited.

“I really enjoyed it. I found all of the exercises challenging and thoughtful and it was nice to sit in a group of strangers and write for hours. Peaceful and unblocking. I would certainly do it again if it came back to Dunedin.” - Nadia Reid, musical and songwriter

“For me as a rapper/song writer I got exactly what I was wanting from the class which was new creative writing ideas and exercises plus a look into Dominic’s approach and insight on writing.” - Lucky Lance, Team Dynamite

“Learn to Write Good pushed me to get off my ass and start taking writing seriously. Dominic gives both practical advice and life tips to writing stories, and never assumes we all come from the same background or education. There’s really fun exercises each class that are adaptive to the needs and levels of the group. Every person has a seat at the table.” - Vanessa Crofskey, poet and performance artist

“Dominic is a dynamic and engaging teacher who uses unorthodox and inclusive pedological teaching practices which means he is able to create unique environments for writers to come, and learn skills, and develop new writing. Because of his casual but informed approach, I found his classes had a real community and collective feel which meant I felt comfortable sharing my ideas with the class and him.” - Chloe Ann-King, journalist, and workers’ rights advocate and activist
