Lolwe Classes are a series of virtual creative writing masterclasses. They are geared towards helping writers achieve their goals by providing guidance from experienced writers who will give valuable feedback on the work presented. Focus will be placed on getting the work to a high standard that is of publishable quality. The classes will also create an understanding of the different elements of craft and guide the writer towards achieving a style that’s consistent with their own voice. Ultimately, this will be a way for the writer to gain the necessary tools to be able to tackle any creative project.
