New Evening Creative Writing Course

27 08 2011

This autumn I will be running an evening course for the first time as opposed to during the day as I have been doing for the last two years, as I want to reach out to those who are busy during the day and would not normally be able to join my classes and have fun with trying out creative writing.

This course will introduce the elements of short story and fiction writing, and through writing exercises you will practice  how to build believable  characters, plot your story, set the scene, find your ‘writing voice’ and many other things.

We will read and discuss short stories and extracts from longer works to explore the  structure of stories and how they ‘work’.  We will also read  and try our hand at different kinds of Creative Writing such as memoir/life writing and travel writing.

More than anything, you will have a lot of fun connecting to your creative side and allowing your imagination to run wild!

Whether  you are a complete beginner or someone who is already writing, this course is suitable  for  you as each person can go at their own pace and do as much or as little writing as they like.  I have found that there is a certain kind of magic that happens with a group like this, and the support and enthusiasm of such a group group is a big part of the experience.  This is a great opportunity to try out and share your writing, but no-one is forced to share if they don’t want to.

The course begins on the 5th of October, from 8-9:30 pm and runs for six weeks.  Please contact Wivenhoe Bookshop on 010206 824050 to book a place.  I advice that you book early as places usually fill up quickly.
