Course Content

The course will introduce participants to the craft of creative writing and will guide them to discover their own inner creativity.

Weekly writing tasks will help the participants to explore and understand the teaching topics and progress their own work. Participants will receive extensive teaching materials, including writing prompts and recommended reading. Participants will also receive feedback on their work and help to expand and improve their writing skills. The course will finish with an opportunity for participants to give a reading of their final work to the entire class and advice as to how to take their writing forward.
