Creative Writing For Beginners Online Short Course

Course description

Through in-class exercises, take-home assignments, readings, workshopping and plenty of constructive feedback, you will explore the basic elements that will encourage you to dust off those unfinished short stories or dive into something completely new. By the end of these ten weeks students will not only have some wonderful pieces of writing under their belts but also lots of practical advice and notes on how to get their work out into the world. The focus will be firmly on fiction (short stories and longer prose) as well as narrative non-fiction (memoir and essays).

This course will enable students to flex their writing muscles and find their writing voices in a fun, focused and supportive environment. This is the perfect class in which to dip your toe and test the writing waters.

Topics covered

  • There will be discussions on technique, with particular emphasis on point of view, characterisation, dialogue, structure, and the process of editing
  • The course has a strong workshop component, which will enable students to become comfortable with reading and sharing work
  • Students will benefit from feedback from both the tutor and colleagues

This is an unmissable opportunity if you want to take the first steps towards writing compelling and successful fiction.

Entry requirements: None apart from an interest in developing creative writing skills and a very good command of the English language.
