Developing Creative Writing
With Andrew McDonnell
This course is a follow on for those who have aken a Starting Creative Writing course and offers the chance for students to workshop their writing.
Over the eight weeks we will be undertaking writing exercises, looking at craft tips and workshopping your writing where we will discuss your work with constructive criticism to help you make decisions over the editing and redrafting of your ideas.
This eight week creative writing course is designed to encourage, inspire and stimulate critical thinking.
You will be encouraged to share your work in class and learn from one another. You will also receive friendly feedback throughout the course. Students should have a good level of basic written English, as the course won’t focus on grammar or vocabulary.
