Creative Writing Taster Classes

Creative Writing Taster Classes

During these practical Creative Writing Taster Classes, you will have the chance to start equipping your creative writing tool kit with the techniques needed to start formulating ideas, characters, plot lines and structures. Your tutor will guide you through exercises to help you discover fresh and imaginative approaches to prose.

Like all of our writing courses, you’ll receive friendly, constructive feedback from your tutor throughout. The opportunity to discuss and share your ideas with a group of fellow writers can be an incredibly useful part of the creative process, helping you develop the style and scope of your writing.

This taster class is a great introduction to how a full length Creative Writing-Beginners course will be taught, your potential tutor and venue.

Please note: fluency in English is essential for this course. If you have any special requirements please inform our Student Services Team prior to your course start date. You can call us on 0207 042 8833 or email info@city-academy.com.

All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.
