What you will learn

For students who have some limited writing experience, this course further develops such key areas as: literary form (novel, short story, poetry); conveying character and experience; enriching language; evoking atmosphere and setting; creating narrative tension (curiosity, suspense).

By the end of the course you will be able to

  • Explore different forms of fiction and poetry.
  • Use language in a more vivid, effective and imaginative way.
  • Gain confidence both in writing and in assessing and critiquing your own work.
  • Work towards competing a piece of work (fiction or poetry) that could be submitted for publication.

Class format and activities

The classes will combine writing exercises in class, group discussion of key issues in creative writing, and reading and discussion of each other's work. Students will be expected to do homework between classes.

In order to ensure that you make the best possible progress on your course, you will have regular feedback from your tutor, in a constructive and supportive environment.
