Creative Writing - Thursdays with Cath Humphris

These are practical sessions designed to get you writing, and thinking about your writing. There will be writing exercises, optional homework tasks and the opportunity to share your writing with the group. Draw inspiration, practice key techniques and discuss theories. The emphasis is on enjoyment, and finding your own style in a friendly and positive group environment. The focus will be on prose forms, particularly short story and flash fiction, but experiments with style are encouraged. Suitable for beginners and improvers. Sessions will include advice on publishing opportunities and competitions.
