We’ll also discuss shaping your work for a wider audience using what you have learned about the conventions required for various outlets.

How will I be taught?

You will be taught in a small, friendly group by our enthusiastic and experienced tutor. You will explore writers, concepts and techniques that demonstrate the ideas you are learning.

The sessions are interactive and you will produce your writing through a workshop environment. You will be able to share your work with your peers and give/receive feedback.

The two hour sessions are divided into one hour of new knowledge/learning, and one hour of a writer’s workshop environment for learners to apply, practise and also share for peer review/feedback.

In this four week course you will develop your skills in:

  • writing from life - finding a form
  • writing from life – using memory
  • writing from life – biography
