Creative Writing

Are you looking for inspiration to write your own poems or stories?
Would you like to know more about how poetry and fiction work, and receive feedback on your drafts in a supportive workshop environment?
If your English lets you down and gets in the way of your creativity, this is the course for you.

Course Content

This course will help you to get your ideas on paper; improve your spelling, punctuation and grammar; and grow in confidence as you read and write for pleasure.
This course is designed to help you to express yourself and your ideas in writing, especially if you have struggled with spelling, grammar or general confidence in your writing abilities. Each week a short story, poem, article or other short text will be read, explained and discussed, with the aim of inspiring you in your own writing.
The course will cover how to read, write and edit a range of poem and story forms, how to give and receive feedback in a workshop, as well as presentation skills.
