Intensive creative writing workshops 2
This course enables writers to explore their creative 'voices' and discover what it is they really wish to write. The idea of the course is to provide writers with an opportunity to grow their creative vocabulary via exercises in both poetry and prose, taught by a published and award-winning writer.
This course provides writers with the opportunity to create more linked pieces of work, and explore their creative writing potential. Taught by a published and award-winning writer, it enables opportunities in understanding the wider world of creative writing.
Who is the course for?
What topics will this course cover
The course will look at how to tell a good story, how to create vibrant images, and also consider how best to craft and polish work. The course will also look at making the most of words, and using the right words for the job in hand.
What will it be like?
WEA classes are friendly and supportive. You will be encouraged to work together with your fellow students and tutor. You will be asked to share your ideas and views in the class and work with the group to give and accept feedback in a supportive environment. The WEA tutor will use a range of different teaching and learning methods and encourage you to be actively involved in your learning. You may be asked to undertake work to support your course outside of your class.
By the end of the course I should be able to:
1. describe how to make a strong narrative. 2. consider how powerful images work. 3. recognise work can be polished and crafted. 4. explain editing processes. 5. consider sending work out, should they wish to do so.
