About the course
The aim of this course is to discover your writing voice and potential. You’ll explore key techniques of creative writing and put them into practice through group and individual exercises.
You will focus on finding inspiration and making a start; writing what you know, story development and planning (with a focus on character, plot and setting); overcoming writer’s block; developing your powers of observation and avoiding common mistakes.
The course is informal, collaborative and productive. All students should have an expectation of completing and constructively feeding back on each other’s work on a weekly basis.
There will be opportunities to extend the learning on the course through homework.
Please bring paper and a pen.
No experience is required.
Join us again for the next term’s course.
