With Isabelle King

If you want to explore your inner-writer, then this is the course for you.

What makes a good piece of writing and what does it take to be a writer? This is a course designed to introduce you to different forms of writing — non fiction, fiction and poetry — as a way to help you explore new techniques and approaches.

In each class, we will look at short texts and think about how different writers use language to achieve their particular effects. Learning to read as a writer is a key part of the journey.

The sessions will include a carefully curated series of tried and tested creative writing exercises, so you will leave each week with a new idea for a story, a character, a setting; a brilliant new line of poetry or a great opening sentence for a piece of prose.

This will be a relaxed and enjoyable class, perfect for those getting started with creative writing.

This is a course designed to introduce you to different forms of writing where we will explore new techniques and approaches.
