COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update


In line with the UK Government and Scottish Government’s public health advice, we are sad to announce that we have had to decide to postpone our forthcoming courses and workshops. We are gutted as we have had the most amazing time teaching you all, however health and safety must come first at this time

We are working on the possibility of providing an online course alternative and will be in touch with everyone who has already booked a place on courses.

We look forward to a brighter time when we can re-open and our courses can bring us all back together.

Do you want to write?


Skriva Writing School offers courses and one-off workshops in Novel Writing, Screenwriting, Script Editing, Short Stories, Comic Books & Graphic Novels, Writing from Life, Writing for Radio, Blogging, and Poetry. We welcome all writers from beginners to advanced. We have quality tuition and small class sizes: all tutors are professional writers. Our aim is to help you write the stories you really want to tell.


Our home is a lovely attic studio on the top floor of the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Centre, in Edinburgh's West End. You can find us on the map on our contact page. We have tea, coffee, and a pretty view of the cathedral spire. Scroll down to see our upcoming courses and workshops.

Saturday 12th October 2019: our Revising Your Novel Workshop will help you sort your rough draft and turn it into a finished novel. We'll focus on structure and character. The workshop is open to anyone who wants to revise a novel. That might be because you've completed your rough draft, or equally because you've got stuck partway through and need help :) Please send your synopsis to the tutor beforehand. Visit 'Novel Writing' on our website, or click the link above. This is a 1-Day Workshop, from 10.00am-4.00pm. Cost: £90.

Tutor: Sophie Cooke
