  • Is this course for you?

    This course is for anyone who uses creative writing as an outlet. This is a beginner’s course so it is aimed at anyone who is new to this and curious, or is already writing and wants to enhance their skills.

    It is a fun course that will work towards giving you more confidence in yourself as a writer. You will have the opportunity to work with other creative people and clasp that rare chance to share your work, and critique others. It will give you the chance to challenge yourself, reach your best potential, explore the written word and its history, and enhance a hobby that could one day become so much more. Creative writing is a wonderful way to relax the mind of everyday stresses, let your imagination run wild, and create something wonderful.

  • Required qualifications

    None.

  • What skills will I develop?

    This course mainly focuses on narrative writing, such as novels, short stories etc. There is room to offer other forms of creative writing, such as poetry or screen writing, but this would have to be requested. This course will set you up to write the next best-seller, covering such topics as, story structure, dialogue, English skills, character development, avenues to publication etc, but will also explore the reason why you write and why it is an important outlet, discussing motivation, idea generation and craft.

    We cover such topics as:

    • Creative writing theories
    • How to show not tell in your writing
    • How to plan your work
    • Writing characters
    • Writing dialogue
    • Story structure from beginning to end (how to draw readers in, how to keep their interest, how to produce a knockout ending)
    • Formatting
    • Avenues to publication
  • Careers

    You could use the skills you obtain in this course to write a novel, or short story, and publish it to becomes an established author. You could also use the transferable skills you gain on this course to blog write, post reviews or critique work.

    Next steps – You can gain a qualification in creative writing at University if this is something you want to pursue. We are hoping to host a ‘part two’ to this course, as this has been requested by many previous students, so keep in contact with us for more information.

    Although this course is not aimed at direct employment – you could simply want to work on your personal craft for your own ‘me’ time, or use it to understand novels and writing you encounter every day.

  • English and maths

    One lesson is dedicated to grammar and punctuation as this is something that is paramount if you want to submit writing to a publisher. Throughout the course you will learn different literary techniques and skills to enhance your writing.

  • Other important information

    All you need is a pen and notebook to attend this course. I do ask you to share your work also, so access to a computer/email will be helpful.

    You have to be 19 years and above to join this course.
