CREATIVE WRITING – Getting Started, Keeping Going

Course Description:

It’s often hard to begin writing, even if you really want to and it’s also hard to keep going, even if you
really want to! Finding time & space, building self-belief & writing habits, all need practice and

This course offers you strategies to get started & to keep going …

In class, we will work on short exercises which prompt writing – opening lines, photographs, objects
and we’ll read samples of writing from published authors – to see how they do it – which will help
stimulate ideas. These starts can be worked on for the following week.

You will be encouraged to delve into memories, experience, imagination as your material & to try
out stories, memoir, short drama, poems etc.

There will also be a focus on tools of the trade: finding a voice, creating setting, character, dialogue,
