Creative writing success

To be publishable, creative writing must be both original and well crafted, the work honed through training, practice, feedback, and multiple revisions. This site has been designed to assist writers in each of these important areas. My name is Pearl Luke. I am the author of Madame Zee and Burning Ground, published by HarperCollins. I am also a university writing instructor, and a creative writing mentor. Until 2008, I offered the materials here only to those I mentored, and in face-to-face workshops known as Weekend with an Author. As more writers enquired about online courses and individualized mentoring, I created this site, which now offers many hours of free writing lessons and resources, in addition to courses and paid services.

Description: Creative writing success
I have had the pleasure of writing and editing professionally for twenty-two years. I've been teaching writing and literature for eighteen years and have been mentoring writers privately since 2001. Reading and writing have been the mainstays of my life for as long as I can remember, but I was well into adulthood before it ocurred to me that I, too, could be a writer. Shortly after that epiphany, and nearing thirty, I enrolled in university and went on to acquire a master's degree in English Literature.
