This course of one-hour classes takes an innovative approach to creative writing by educating the imagination through guided experimentation and a play with words. Among other things, this will enable writers, beginners or otherwise, to identify and reconnect with the undiscovered possibilities of their talent in poetry and the short story form.
Teaching is delivered in a friendly and guided workshop environment which aims to develop confidence in writing as well as reading your work aloud, offering the necessary positive and constructive criticism appropriate to the work in question.
Some experience of writing poetry and prose is an advantage but not necessary. All that is required is a willingness to learn by exploring new ideas, and the ability to write in English and communicate your ideas effectively.
Weekly sessions will be supported by reading material which draws from a diverse community of writers. Information regarding how to get published, poetry magazines, competitions, venues, websites, small presses and literary development agencies will be distributed if and when they arise.
If you have any questions about the course content please directly email the tutor, Mr Ronnie McGrath.
