Course Details

CREATIVE WRITING - GETTING STARTED, KEEPING GOING

 

Ever thought you'd like to write but don't know how or where to start?

 

Been writing on and off on your own, need encouragement to keep going? 

 

If so, this is the course for you.

 

The course aims to get you writing and keep you writing, whether your interest is in poems, stories or memoir. It will encourage you to delve into memories, experiences, imagination and draw on them as material for your work.

 

In class we will work on short exercises which prompt writing - opening lines, photographs, objects, images - which you can then continue at home. There will also be a focus on the tools of the trade: finding your voice, using images, writing character, setting and dialogue and building surprise and tension in stories and poems.

 

We will also read samples of writing from published authors, to see how they do it - so expect lively, enjoyable discussion.
