Creative Writing

Ref: C3671387

A relaxed exploration of creative writing, including writing practice. We will mostly learn techniques of fiction writing, but may also have a look at other types of writing. We will also look at work by published authors, examining techniques they have used in their writing, and using this to inspire new writing.
