Course description

An Approach to Creative Writing

This introduction to creative writing short course, taught at our Central London campus, will explore how to find inspiration and how to make your creative writing lively and engaging.

You will learn the key elements of fiction writing, particularly in relation to short stories and novels. Subjects covered include structure, characterisation, dialogue, point of view, narrative voice, style and how to develop, sustain and end a story. On this highly practical course you will also learn how to support your practice as a writer and how to revise and edit your own work.
