Creative Writing Courses

My online day courses are suitable for anyone who wants to start writing creatively or those who want to develop their writing skills. The courses run from 10am-3.30pm.  During the course you will be encouraged to write your own creative pieces, and feedback and encouragement will be based on each individual writer’s aims and ambitions.
 
I am always happy to consider running day courses on other creative writing topics or to run any of the courses on additional days. Please contact me if you are interested in either of these and if there is the demand, I’ll run a course.
