Creative Writing – Online Course

Creative Writing – Online Course

Course Details

This online Creative Writing class is suited for those who already have some experience in Creative Writing. Each week, you will learn about the craftsmanship and magic that goes into creating a story. From creating impactful dialogue and setting to plot structure. This course will explore how to bring words and characters to life.

We will also help you to locate the topics that you are interested in writing about and support you with ongoing feedback as your work flourishes. No narrative form is off limits – there will be chances to explore poetry, short stories, flash fiction and the longer novel.

There will be opportunities to learn about submitting work for competitions, chances to read your pieces in class, and a session on self-editing. The Tutor is an experienced, published writer who is there to support your writing journey.

Information & Support

Please bring along a pen and paper. We also recommend purchasing a journal to aid your writing.

While a journal is optional, it can be invaluable for moments of writer’s block and can help with remembering the important details out in the world that make stories feel real. Access to a computer and the internet would be valuable for typing up work and for maintaining correspondence with the Tutor. 

Courses will be offered throughout the year giving learners the opportunity to further develop their skills.
