Description

How do we transform experience and imagination into compelling prose? These eight-week courses are designed to develop your creative skills and confidence to write. Here is an opportunity to explore your powers of expression in a critical but supportive environment. Weekly assignments and group discussions will help you to refine your craft, strengthen your narrative voice and understand your audience. Personal tuition and advice will address the writing process, from getting started to getting published. And all the stories in between.
