So, you want to write but can’t seem to get going? Then this is the place to start. In this six-week course, you’ll receive tips on everything from how to get started and keep going, to building a story with a beginning, a middle and an ending.
This course will benefit anyone interested in writing, whether it’s a short story, a novel or a work of non-fiction. It would also suit anyone seeking to improve their writing skills, whatever the genre, as it will examine essential aspects of writing such as character, setting and plot.
During the six weeks, you’ll be introduced to a set of useful exercises and to examples of writing that will stimulate your own work. You’ll develop your voice and produce a piece of writing, whether it’s a novel chapter or a poem, or a finished story.
By the end of the course, you’ll have the tools to keep writing.
