Creative Writing Advanced
Why this course?
Have you written a novel or are serious about wanting to? If so, this workshop-based course is aimed at experienced writers of fiction, who want to develop their skills further.
Each writer will bring their own project to work on (be it a novel, or collection of short stories). It can be at an early stage or later stage, as long as you have a specific fiction project you want to work on.
You will have the opportunity to share your work and have it assessed by the tutor and in class discussion.
The major aspects of fiction will be looked at in detail, including: plotting, characterisation, structure, setting / location, dialogue, and more.
Advice will be offered on routes to getting published. The course will also include a one-to-one session with the tutor for each writer.
Weekly assignments will be given out, as an integral part of the course. This is to further your development as writers and your project. To get the most from the course, it is strongly advised that you try and complete these assignments.
