About the course

Our creative writing courses will help you 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; overcoming writer’s block; developing your powers of observation and avoiding common mistakes.

The courses are informal, collaborative and productive.

Our Autumn and Spring Term courses will help you to discover and develop your writing skills.

Our Summer Term workshop is an opportunity to focus on a piece of work in depth.


Learners will attend weekly lessons in college.

Learners also benefit from access to the college library during our evening opening times, including computers, study stations, print-based and electronic learning materials, printers and scanners.
