Creative Writing

Ref: C2339125

A course for writers wishing to increase their experience and challenge themselves a little more. The course will include regular writing sessions across a variety of disciplines and will continue to improve writing through learning the craft and feeding back to others in the group. The course will provide interesting stimuli for writing each week, assignments for completion at home and an opportunity during the term for learners to give and receive close editing feedback on a longer piece of work. Students will set writing goals and revisit them regularly during the course.
