Creative Writing: Portfolio is an exciting new one-year course which provides writers an opportunity to develop, progress and ultimately gain specialised evaluation of a portfolio of writing/long form manuscript or novel and synopsis up to 50,000 words. Other forms are welcome including poetry, film and television, stage plays and many other creative writing proposals. Participants attend a weekly seminar from January to December, where their writing is read and discussed regularly (This course runs adjacent to ‘Creative Writing: Single Project’) . At the end of three semesters, writers submit a long form work or a portfolio of writings for evaluation by the course tutor in Spring 2024 after the course concludes. Writers may also submit an industry level query for review. The objective is for writers to move their writing closer to achieving industry recognition through publication or to independently proceed with their writing projects and share with family and friends. Writers receive a completion certificate at the end of the course for Continuing & Professional Development purposes.
