Pleased to announce I will once again be taking a limited number of students as the English component of Alessandro Manzetti’s Creative Writing Academy. I’m modeling my curriculum on the successful program already instituted by Manzetti in Italian. Each course is individualized to work with each student’s strengths and weaknesses.

The Basic Course, lasting 6 months, is free for candidates aged between 18 and 26, as part of the Under 26 Young Talent Project supported by us, and paid for from proceeds from the Academy. The Advanced Course, lasting 12 months, is only available for a fee. You can read about the courses here.

Space and Time magazine will be considering exceptional work from both Italian and English students for possible publication in the magazine. The student would be compensated for their work and retain rights as if it was a regular submission.

Students interested in applying please contact me at

Please include your current educational qualifications, any other courses taken complete with a list of publication credits and a 500 word essay on why you are a writer.
