Creative Writing for Beginners
the ortus 82-96 grove lane london se5 8sn
15 Jan - 26 March (excluding 19 Feb)
Using in-class exercises and take-home assignments this course focuses on the nuts and bolts of creating narrative fiction, such as point of view, characterisation, structure and creating scenes through dialogue. You will look at ways to build writing into your lifestyle, and the process of editing and rewriting. You will have fun with words and create a deconstruction/collage piece. There is an opportunity to workshop your work, enabling you to feel comfortable sharing your work, as well as benefitting from valuable feedback.
You will work towards a final piece of 1-2,000 words, to be read at the final class when we will have a night of readings.
Studens who wish to continue with their creative writing in a supportive environment may wish to graduate on to the Writers' Workout course.
