Creative Writing

If you would like to explore creative writing, then this course is for you. We will experiment with poetry as well as investigate technical aspects of fiction such as plot structure, developing characterisation and dialogue and establishing setting and mood. In addition, we will read and critique other fiction writers and use writing prompts in class to help us create a polished piece. You will find your creative voice, establishing where you want to go next as a writer and storyteller.
