3 Creative Writing Courses

“I learnt about aspects of writing that I’d never considered before – as someone who has
taken a lot of writing courses, I didn’t expect so much that was new. It was just what I needed.” Liz Barnes

Three complementary courses each comprising 6x two-hour classes.

Most sessions include excerpts from a range of relevant authors and a 20-25 minute writing exercise based on the theme of the week. There is plenty of time for students to read their work and discuss. Students with an existing project will be able to develop this, both in class and at home. Students without an existing project will be able to develop general creative writing skills. Students will be encouraged to share their own work and feedback on the work of others. Useful to both writers of literature and poets. Homework is given each week.

Featured authors include: Kei Miller, Tim Winton, Margaret Atwood, Rose Tremain, Carys Davis, Jo Shapcott, Joyce Carol Oates, Andrea Levy, Helen MacDonald, Tim O’Brien, Jeanette Winterson, Tricky, Tracey Emin and Melissa Harrison.
