Remote Courses

Online Creative Writing course - Monday 13th April to Friday 17th April 2020

Our online courses cover the basics of writing a story and the group will complete two stories by the end of the week or by the end of the course. We show them how to use imagery and the senses in their writing; to add specific detail to descriptions of place and character; to use dialogue to convey character and setting; to build interesting characters; to set their stories in a specific place; and to plot a story using a timeline.
