What is #LearnWritingEssentials?


#LearnWritingEssentials is a boutique creative writing studio that consists of e-courses, online workshops, presentations & talks, in-person mentorships, copywriting for organizations, and other services. The school evolved out of a necessity and a desire to see more women of colour holding senior and executive positions in the writing and publishing world. The #LearnWritingEssentials courses resist the traditional and embrace and encourage the hybridity and outside the box thinking needed to shape stories authentically. Learn more about founder, Chelene Knight, here. Whether you are a writer looking to hone your skills, or an organization looking to enhance and reinforce your mandate via professional development workshops for staff, or whether you need some copywriting for your website, I am here for you.

Our Vision


“Writing and publishing are not based solely on craft or talent, there’s a privilege involved. It’s our goal to reach and support underrepresented writers and to give space to those writers who are often muted or silenced. Inclusivity, open-mindedness, creativity, teaching through mentorship, and freedom to share stories are all values that we place at the forefront of everything we do.”

—Chelene Knight, CEO #LearnWritingEssentials
