Course Summary

Every good story begins somewhere.

A fun and informative course suited to people interested in writing but are unsure how to get started. In a relaxed and encouraging environment, you’ll talk, workshop and complete exercises with like-minded people, gaining the confidence and ability to express yourself through words. This course has a focus on generic writing skills without focusing on any one particular genre. Those skills can then be applied to a range of styles, from poetry and short stories to personal narratives, while having lots of fun along the way.

Content:

  • Finding Inspiration
  • Character voice, creation and development
  • Settings, description, atmosphere and mood.
  • Plotting and structure.
  • Dialogue, point of view
  • Rewriting and editing
  • Recognizing and avoiding clichés
  • Showing not telling

Each class includes workshopping, exercises and homework, aimed at developing each student’s individual writing style.

Materials:

Please bring a pen and paper to each session.

Target audience:

Anyone with an interest in creative writing – particularly those unsure about adhering to a certain style or genre.
