The writer is an explorer. Every step is an advance into a new land.


Ralph Waldo Emerson

I run courses for people who would like to write professionally or just perfect their skills in creative writing. These courses are suitable both for new writers and for those with previous experience of writing. The aim will be to develop strengths and build on them as well as identifying weaknesses that can be worked on to foster improvement. The practice of creative writing can be used to enrich many areas of life overall. Every writer or would-be writer has to find their voice, a voice that is entirely their own and one that they can use to write in a style that belongs solely to them. One of the primary missions of the course is to help students identify their voice and nurture it for use in their writing. During the course, you will learn strategies that can be utilised along with assignments and exercises, to help inspire creativity by firing the imagination, while learning the more practical aspects of writing for interest or to prepare for publication. If you are interested in signing up for the courses, please browse the available courses above.

Poetry creates the myth, the prose writer draws its portrait.

Jean-Paul Satre

The course will provide the tools you need to develop and hone your writing skills and an opportunity to start your own writing project.

This course will be taught to the industry standard using Final Draft software.
