Description: This creative writing course is suitable for beginners or writers looking for a fresh injection of inspiration, and is perfect for all genres: fiction, historical, biographical, autobiographical etc.

Course Outline: In a warm, fun and inspiring environment, you will learn the nuts and bolts of the creative process and the necessary key ingredients – character, structure, discipline, framework, plot, theme, drama, the creation of ideas, point of view, location, editing, rewrites, delivery, and the all-important strong, dramatic and satisfying conclusion that will leave your readers wanting more.

From the get-go, you will begin to produce work, sharing it with your fellow students to build your confidence, critiquing skills and the necessary thick-skin all writers must have. And over the six weeks, you will develop a writer’s work ethic and discipline to make your goals happen, seeing remarkable results each day.

At the end of the course, you will have produced the first ten-thousand words of your novel, and be fired up to continue towards your end target.
