Get down to the nuts and bolts of creative writing in fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. We will look at the various aspects of what it takes to be a creative writer in this class.
We will develop techniques such as:
The editing process,
Feedback and critique,
Genre and Form.
We will explore the text of established authors in context to each week's subject.
All this will be done in an environment where writers are encouraged to support each other's process by sharing, listening and giving feedback.
The class is open to all levels, as there is value in learning from the self-expression of others.
This is an LGBTQ friendly environment.
The course aims to reach a broad scope of capability. The concept is to share and support the growth and autonomy of women as authors. We welcome those that have a deeper understanding of literature and writing, but equally if you wish to come and learn from a completely new perspective you are more than welcome to attend.
A good grasp of the English language is essential.
