Course Description


Due to the success of this course, we plan on offering it again soon :)
Please apply if you are interested & as soon as we have enough learners, we will contact you with more information.

No experience is needed, just a lot of enthusiasm, a notebook and pen!

Content & overview
You will learn about how writing can develop creativity and improve our well-being. Sometimes getting things down in black and white can help sort out what we’re really feeling. The course enables us to do this by exploring the different skills involved in writing short stories, poetry and non-fiction writing such as memoir or travel writing.

Attendance and Learning Assessment
You will need to attend your class session on time and stay for the whole session, and maintain attendance of at least 90%. The expected time to complete this course is 10 weeks.
How will this course benefit me?
You will be encouraged to keep a writer’s journal. Regular writing in a journal, your experiences, thoughts, ideas, in fact just about anything that is significant to you is guaranteed to bring more creativity into your life. What is more, your journal can leave you with your own personal biography; something you can re-read with pleasure and use to develop new writing.

Course Delivery
This is a face-to-face classroom-based course with set teaching times.

Each week you will be guided through a series of writing exercises. Some of the work will be based on free writing when you are given a stimulus and asked to write whatever is in your head, trying not to censor yourself. Thinking too much can switch off your inner critic! Your work is private and will not be shared with others. If you choose to read any of what you have written out loud, this sharing and being heard by others in a warm and supportive atmosphere can be very powerful. You will also learn to shape and improve your writing and explore where it can be published if you want to do that.

Learners who enjoy the course may want to move onto Intermediate Creative Writing or Functional skills English courses from Entry level to Level 2.

We have a dedicated Careers and Employability Coordinator who can support you to plan your next steps.
