creative Writers!

Ref: C3675498

Creative Writers provides a safe and friendly environment for students to enhance their writing abilities and literary knowledge. To help provoke inspiration, we explore a range of literary genres from Poetry to Sci- Fi. There is no pressure for students to produce work on the spot in class as the tutor will be vigilant and always read the room. The course has each students wellbeing in mind, promoting self confidence and positivity consecutively. Writers of all levels are welcomed to the group and there is never any pressure for students to produce or read out work if they do not want to. If students would like to attend purely for the inspirational aspect the class provokes then this is also fine, you are welcome to sit back, relax and be inspired.
