Our four week one-to-one Beginners Creative Writing Course is suitable for complete beginners. It’s also suitable if you haven’t written anything for a while and if you’d like to get back into a writing routine.

There will be weekly notes and exercise to help you. Each exercise will be read by your tutor and you’ll receive weekly written feedback on the exercises.

But the main thing is to have fun during the course!

The course will cover:

(1) Introduction – In the first week, we’ll take a look at the importance of observation and the power of memory.

(2) Characters – The second module will examine what makes successful characters in fiction.

(3) Plot. We’ll look at how to generate ideas and we’ll also examine conflict in a story.

(4) Dialogue, Endings. In this module we’ll give you some tips as to how to write effective dialogue. And we’ll take a look at endings and some do’s and don’t’s!
