Course Welcome (from a new book)

Creative Writing Course



Nice to hear from you and welcome to our FREE First Steps writing course – as far as we know the ONLY one of it’s type on the internet by a prolific writer. A couple of teaching institutions (even a film school that teaches script-writing) in the States have been very encouraging about our CREATIVE WRITING COURSES. I see more and more learning institutions around the globe linking to our site. This has been very encouraging and exciting for my technical “geek” associate Bill and I based here in “Sleepy Hollow” in “Godzone” (as New Zealand is affectionately known).There has been great interest in our courses since we started about four years ago (the “ORIGINAL AND FAMOUS” online creative writing course) and it has been extensively developed. (Far better, I think… even if I say so myself!)

We are offering the first Course FREE and the Twelve lessons of the Introductory Creative Writing Course will be accessible on payment . We are requesting a nominal (funny word that ‘nominal’) fee of U.S $69* for the INTRODUCTORY COURSE of 12 lessons.You can pay directly by credit card on our secure site. It’s perfectly safe (and painless too. OUCH!). Otherwise a bank draft made out to C.Lock can be forwarded to me at: Eagle Productions, 2 Elm St,  Gisborne 4010 New Zealand. You can do the lessons at any time which suits you and forward to me. We realise all of you have different time constraints to do the course. Therefore please feel free to do each lesson at your own pace.We have had many participants from all over the world since starting the first course about four years ago; however I am committed to responding to every submission. I have put my own books aside to give my undivided attention, time and energies to this course. My technical associate, Bill and I do appreciate hearing from you and reading your work. I believe everyone has a story to tell within themselves… just waiting for the time and opportunity… but most of all, we have to have the drive and dedication to get it down on paper.

I firmly believe we can use all our experiences in life to our benefit (financially and otherwise), but most of all to reach out and touch others. That is what I have tried to do in my various books.We all have unique styles and individual ways of getting our messages across – sharing through the written word.You give me the inspiration to keep developing the course, so that we can all learn and grow from each others life experiences.- through sharing and interacting (big word, eh!). It’s through YOUR participation and submissions that make this online writing course worthwhile. Phew! .. Well, your turn now…

About craig lock

ABOUT c the Author Craig has a 'passion' for writing books that tell stories about people doing positive things in this often so hard, sometimes unkind world, occasionally cruel, yet always amazing world - true stories that leave the reader feeling uplifted, empowered and hopefully even inspired. and from and Craig Lock loves to encourage and empower people to be the best they can possibly be, and to create what they want in life. Craig has learnt plenty from the "school of life" (still "battered and bruised") and also from a few "hard knocks on the head". He is an extensive world traveller (on a "shoestring budget") and failed professional emigrater who has spent most of his lifes savings on airfares. He is still sliding down the razor blade of life on the beautiful undiscovered island that is New Zealand, somewhere near the bottom (rude!) of the world near Antarctica. There he talks to the 60 million sheep! Craig has been involved in the corporate world (life assurance) for over twenty years in South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. However, through a strange set of circumstances and finding himself in a small town near the bottom of the world ...and with nothing else to do, he started writing. That was five years ago. Five published books later and having written another twenty manuscripts (on widely differing subjects - well what else is there to do here?)... this is where Craig is in the "journey/adventure" that is life. Craig has taught at the local Polytechnic, as well as running a successful creative writing course (not teaching sheep!). He was the author of (as far as we know) the first creative writing course on the internet Craig has many varied interests and passions. He is particularly interested in the field of psychology – studying the human mind and what makes different people "tick-tock grandfather clock". He is fascinated by the "overlap between psychology and the dimension of spirituality". One of his missions in life is helping people make the most of their hidden potential and so finding their niche in life... so that they are happy. Craig’s various books probably tell more about his rather "eventful" life best (no one could believe it!). He writes books with serious messages and themes, then as a contrast "rather crazy, wacky stuff"…to keep him sane here. As an ‘anonymouse’ person wrote: "All of us are born mad; some of us remain so." Well nothing else much happens in quiet provincial New Zealand, other than headlines like "Golf Ball Thrown at Policeman" (it missed, btw!) and "Beach Toilet Closed for Season." True! The various books* that Craig “felt inspired to write” are available at ebooks (digital books) Paperbacks (see and"craig+lock"&sitesearch_type=STORE and All proceeds go to needy and underprivileged children – MINE! “When the writer is no more , the value of your purchase will soar! “ “Together, one mind, one life (one small step at a time), let’s see how many people (and lives) we can encourage, impact, empower, enrich, uplift and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials…and strive for and perhaps one sunny day even achieve their wildest dreams.” PPS Don’t worry about the world ending today… as it’s already tomorrow in scenic and tranquil ‘little’ New Zealand
