Beginners Creative Writing Course (6 Weeks)With Nikki Sheehan. Starting 16/03/2021
Start Date: 16th March 2021
Our beginners courses are in huge demand and are filling up very quickly, so we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.
(If you booked a course with Kerry or Lucie for February, the course is going ahead. We just removed it from the site as it’s full and to prevent overbooking)
Our one-to-one Online Beginners Creative Writing Course is suitable for complete beginners and no writing experience is required. 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.
You will be given weekly notes and assignments to help you. Your tutor will read every assignment and will provide written feedback.
Module One – Character. Meet your main character(s). Work with them, analyse and interrogate them, and follow where they lead you as you write their story.
Module Two – Structure. Learn how to use ancient knowledge about story structure to plot like a pro and create a compelling tale.
Module Three – Setting. Find out how developing and deepening a sense of space and time in a story can bring reality to your characters and elevate your work.
Module Four – Dialogue. Let your characters speak for themselves. Practice effectively using point of view and dialogue to expose the inner lives of your cast.
Module Five – Writer’s block. Learn why we sometimes want to give up. Try out practical techniques to overcome dips and push on to achieve our writing goals.
Module Six – Happy endings. Understand how to give your story a satisfying conclusion, and where to go next. A guide to completing and submitting your work for publication.
