New ‘Write Your Book’ course
Shoreham by Sea: starting January 2024

Gerry is offering a six week evening course for writers at Shoreham’s brand new local bookshop, Chapter 34, running from Jan 25th to Feb 20th, from 7 to 8.30pm.


Is there a book you’d like to start writing or make progress on? This very practical hands-on course for anyone is anywhere in the process of creating or publishing their book, fiction or non-fiction. You might want to move forward with:

    • thinking up what your book is about in the first place
    • planning the book and its overall shape
    • writing or editing the material
    • getting the book published and read

Places are limited and must be booked and paid for in advance. The course fee is £75, which can be paid to Gerry by bank transfer or Paypal.


“Great course, with thoughtful helpful guidance and encouragement. I highly recommend Gerry’s writing class.” – previous  participant

“The King has asked me to thank you for the copy of your book that you so generously sent. As you will know, His Majesty is deeply committed to protecting the natural world, and so your thoughtful message is truly appreciated.” – Buckingham Palace

“I really love this delightful, upbeat book”
– multi-award-winning nature writer Mark Cocker

“Lovely book….utterly charming, and infectious in its enthusiasm. An inspiration to those  seeking to connect more closely with the wildlife on their doorstep. I really enjoyed it, and liked the quirky humour. Humour is something which is sometimes lacking in books about nature”
– Award-winning nature writer Neil Ansell

“My missus loves your wonderful book, Gerry, couldn’t put it down. Her mum had been really poorly for her last few months with us; so she used to read your book to mum, sitting for hours just reading it to her, that will have such wonderful memories for her.” – Phil M
