This course will explore starting points and finding inspiration as part of your journey towards making your writing lively and engaging.
What will I learn?
You will learn the key elements of fiction writing, particularly in relation to short stories, including structure, characterisation, dialogue, point of view, narrative voice, style, and how to develop, sustain and end a story. Depending on the particular interests of students on the course, we may also look specifically at novel writing, experimental writing, playwriting and scriptwriting. You will also be given guidance to help you continue to develop your practice as a writer, how to revise and edit your own work, and how to attract the attention of publishers; as well as self-publishing digitally.
How will I be assessed?
This course has no formal assessment, although detailed feedback will be given to you as part of the process.
Creative writing skills can be applied to a very wide range of career paths, ranging from Digital Media and Publishing to Business and Marketing.
Applicants must be proficient in written and spoken English equivalent to GCSE at Grade C.
