Writing for Pleasure

Ref: C2419161

The course is aimed at people with no experience together with those who have slightly more. All aspects of creative writing will be explored including the novel, the short-story, poetry and plays. The tutor is an established playwright so one session will be given up to dramatic writing and dialogue. One student is a published poet and there will be a session devoted to exercises to open an awareness of this genre. Music and art will also be used as a stimulus for creativity with local artists bringing in work. Exercises will be set in class to explore and develop skills in story-telling, character and dialogue in the novel and short-story. Students will have every opportunity to read their own work for group and tutor feedback. Some students have gone on to publish their work but above all this is a course for writing just for the fun of it.
