Creative Writing/Writers' Workshop Improvers

All CategoriesWriting classes

Course synopsis

This friendly and creative group is ideal for all writers, whether they are complete beginners or more experienced..  Together we will explore a wide variety of genres and formats,  and there will be plenty of writing prompts and exercises to inspire you and keep you going,  and help you nurture your own unique ‘voice’ as a writer.  

We will discuss the world of publishing and explore aspects of the literary world so we have a good understanding of them both, and it is envisaged that field trips will be offered, probably as activities in addition to the set classroom sessions. 

Your tutor is an experienced and published author with many years’ experience in teaching adults of all levels of ability, from basic skills to undergraduate level. Whatever you are writing and whether you aim to publish or just to share with friends, you are assured of a warm welcome, a supportive and positive learning experience, and constructive feedback. 

You will need access to an email account, and a basic understanding of Microsoft Word (or compatible alternative) for the ‘homework’.
