About the Course
The course offers an introduction to the basic skills needed for writing prose and poetry. The course offers you a developmental and directed learning pathway, within a context of structured freedom.
The teaching materials contain clear instruction and outlines of expectation, covering prose, scriptwriting and poetry. The exercises and assignments are designed to help you to develop your own creative style and voice and to inspire and encourage you to begin writing creatively from direct sensory experience and detailed observation over a wide breadth of genres and forms.
You will develop your writing practice by creating a body of work comprising short pieces of writing. You will develop an understanding of critical models by reading, drafting, editing and presenting your creative writing and responding to constructive critical suggestions from your tutor. You will reflect on the writing process and critically appraise your own work by writing reflective commentaries throughout the course.
The Open College of the Arts is a non-profit educational charity offering arts education through open and flexible distance learning methods. You will receive support from a one-to-one tutor who is also an arts practitioner and you will become part of a thriving UK and international student community.
All of our part time distance learning Open degrees are awarded by the University for the Creative Arts (UCA). We have an exceptional range of part-time Open courses at Higher Education level in painting, drawing, photography, music, illustration, graphic design, creative writing, textiles, sculpture, printmaking, art history and film.
