This course is open to all writers, whether you are very new to creative writing or have some experience already. The course will provide you with some time, space and inspiration to develop your craft, voice and style.
With structured feedback on your work from other course participants and the tutor, some practical theory and writing activities during the session, it will be a relaxed, enjoyable, inclusive and encouraging space to explore your creativity.
