Hi and thank you for visiting.

Welcome to the place to get your writing aspirations underway or reignited.

My name is Dominic Canty - writer, journalist, stand-up comic, rock singer, lover of apple strudel, founder of creative writer UK, and, most relevantly to this introduction - an author quoted by South London Press as being “one of London’s most exciting new writers” upon the release of Dead Men Should Know Better – the first novel in the Bristo Trabant Secret Agent Series.

I always wanted to be a writer. Growing up in South East London, I was forever creating characters and stories; couldn’t get enough of the huge plots and international locations of the Bond films and novels, then, likewise, the Len Deighton books. Yet the more I read, the more I realised I just didn’t have the tools to produce structured, presentable work. The answer was obvious, and looking back, enrolling on my very first creative writing course was the best creative investment I have ever made. It was pivotal, setting me free on this joyous path that gets ever-more rewarding .

At creative-writer UK, we are passionate about inspiration; about inspiring new writers to discover their voice, get productive, learn the creative process and polish those rough diamond ideas into the glistening gem stone works of fiction readers simply won’t want to put down.

I hope to see you on one of our courses soon.

Best wishes


“Exceptional value, structure and insight of the creative process. When I compare six-weeks ago to how I’m writing now, the difference is remarkable.”
