On day two you will start looking at the use of description and metaphors in your work. You will also continue with your individual writing.

DAY THREE

At this point you will start looking at perspective and tense, and you will also have a one-to-one session with your tutor.

DAY FOUR

Much of day four will focus on the importance of critical thinking in writing, and you will also continue working on your individual piece.

On the final day of the course you will be sharing some of the work you have done and learn more about the writing industry.

What our students say

The course was taught in a really supportive, encouraging and inspiring way. Our tutor Introduced us to a wide range of creative writing approaches as well as giving us some fantastic references. I was lucky to be part of an extremely talented group and the way in which the classes were structured allowed everyone to listen to each other and become further inspired.
