Online courses

Have you ever wanted to write an article for a magazine, a short story, a poem or even a book? Why didn’t you? If the reason was that you lacked the confidence in your creative writing, then this is the course for you.

Over the sessions, you will work through exercises to help you develop your writing flare and word power. You will look at what makes a “good piece of writing” and how you can improve. You will work in groups most of the time, but some individual work will be involved.

This course is aimed at students who want to be able to express themselves in the written word. It is not therefore important to be a strong speller or have any formal qualifications in English, just a wish to improve your current skills. This course will involve some hand written work and may involve some work at home after the class. Equipment will be provided and each student must be able to commit to attend all 4 weeks of the course.
