Online Creative Writing Courses
Each session follows a theme, exploring different aspects of storytelling. Whether you hanker to write a novel, work on a memoir or are simply in search of inspiration, you will receive ideas, support and encouragement.
There are exercises to stimulate creativity, thought-provoking short extracts by published authors, and the opportunity to get feedback on your own writing. You might have a work in progress and are now "stuck", or have written previously and need a fresh start, or you may just want to experiment with creative ideas and see if writing is for you.
You may just want to use your dedicated writing time as an opportunity to unwind and 'escape' for a while.
These online classes are designed to help you reach your writing goals - whatever they may be.
Examples of topics covered:
What would you like to write?
Are your characters interesting enough to engage the reader?
Whose story is it? How do you choose a point of view?
How do you write realistic dialogue?
How do you edit my own work?
Fiction, non-fiction, creative non-fiction? How do you choose?
How do you stay motivated?
What routes are there to publication?
ONLINE CREATIVE WRITING - SIX WEEK COURSE - FLEXIBLE START DATE
This course is designed to provide flexibility around work, family and other commitments. You can start whenever you like and fit the classes into your own schedule. If you need to skip a week, that's fine, you can catch up when it suits.
Once a week you'll receive an email with writing exercises and an assignment (up to 2000 words). This can be emailed back to me and I'll provide suggestions for improving or developing the piece.
All you need is a laptop or Ipad and Internet connection.
You can be a complete beginner, someone returning to writing after a break, or someone more experienced who enjoys the framework of a regular writing session and feedback. I'm happy to tailor this to individual goals, so do get in touch if you'd like to discuss this further.
The cost for the six week course is £100.
