creative writing


Open to all adults – no writing experience needed.

Do you have an idea for a novel you’d like to develop further? Would you like to share your work with other writers? Would you simply like to learn a little more about the craft of writing and the world of publishing?

If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, this introductory course would be perfect for you! Every week we’ll write and share our writing with fellow students in a safe and supportive environment. We’ll think about the craft of writing, considering areas such as setting, characterisation, dialogue, point of view, plot, pace and more.

You don’t need any previous writing experience to join the course, just a passion for the written word.

The course is taught by Carnegie Medal-nominated children’s author, Lucy Hope.
