Creative Writing - Explorations and Narratives with Deborah Tyler-Bennett

Ref: C2346665

Writing is (as Ernest Hemingway put it when writing about how Paris inspired his work) 'a moveable feast' which enables writers to develop their ideas and imagery over time. If you have creative writing skills and wish to develop them, or if you're new to writing and want to learn accessible ideas alongside like-minded participants - then come along and join this friendly course. Taught by an award winning published writer, this course uses exercises in both poetry and prose to explore how to make the most of the written word.

Course aim

This course is a creative writing guide, meant to stretch writers' skills and techniques.

Do I need any particular skills or experience?

  • This course is for beginners and improvers
  • New writers will learn as much from more practised participants as they will from the tutor.

By the end of the course I should be able to:

  • Identify and analyse at least one area in your work that can be improved on, and discuss in class methods through which you can improve this.
  • State which areas of creative writing you are familiar with, and also state those which you need guidance on.
  • List three key skills in structuring a narrative.
  • List three key skills in structuring a poem.
