Creative Writing – Online Course

Creative Writing – Online Course

Course Details

This learning opportunity is designed for people who already have some experience in creative writing. Each week you will learn about the craft and magic that goes into telling a good story. From creating impactful dialogue and setting through to gripping plot structure, this course will enable you to explore how to bring words and characters to life. It will also help you locate the topics that interest you and support you with ongoing feedback as your work flourishes.

Importantly, no narrative form will be off limits. Indeed, there will be chances to explore poetry, short stories, flash fiction and the novel format.

In addition, there will be opportunities to learn how best to submit work for competitions, plus chances to read your pieces in class and a session on self-editing.

Importantly, your Tutor will be an experienced, published writer who will be on-hand to support you throughout your writing journey.

Information & Support

Please bring along a pen and paper. We also recommend using a purchasing journal to aid your writing. While a journal is optional, it can be invaluable during moments of writer’s block and can help you remember the important details that make stories feel real.

Access to a computer and the internet would be valuable for typing your work and for maintaining correspondence with your Tutor.

Courses will be run continually throughout the year. Please see the current Brockenhurst College Adult Leisure and Learning brochure for further details.
