DURATION: 6 weeks
Start Date: August 31st, 2022 – 2 places remaining
Our beginners classes are in huge demand and are filling up very quickly, so we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.
Places are strictly limited to 10 participants. You don’t have to be based in the US to take the class. We accept students from around the world!
The main thing is to free up your imagination and above all have fun!
This creative writing class fits in with a student’s schedule. You don’t have to be online at any particular time or day. Instead, the class is carried out through email correspondence, so you can read the notes whenever it suits you. There will be weekly notes and assignments over the course of six weeks. Your tutor will read each assignment and provide written feedback. You’ll find out more about how the online classes work here.
Please note that this is a class for adults. If you’re under 18, check out our writing for teenagers classes.
The tutor will email you on the course start date with your first module; please check your Spam/Junk folder for this email.

We’ll learn how to lose our inner perfectionist and practise some techniques to free up our writing muscles.
Module Two: Character Creation
How might you find and develop your characters? We’ll look at a variety of approaches to this.

Module Four: Setting
We’ll explore the effect of setting and its interaction with emotion, character and plot.

Whose story is this? This week, let’s look at the range of possibilities there are, and how this can strengthen your confidence as a writer and help you find your voice.
Module Six: Structure
In this, the final week, we’ll examine how narrative can be arranged to create tension and keep your reader reading.
