If you have completed the course for 15 – 17 year olds (either this year or a previous year) and want another week of writing, then book your place today.
On this course, you’ll learn the skills and techniques to elevate the quality of your writing projects towards professional standard.
Drawing on methods experienced on the first course, you’ll work both independently and collaboratively to further develop and establish life-long writing behaviours and values.
With a focus on enjoying the writing process, it’s ideal for anyone wishing to pursue a career in writing, but similarly enjoyable for someone who simply wishes to enhance their writing process and revisit the forum of the summer course.
During this course you will:
- focus on how to turn your ideas into the written word
- learn to refine your work to make maximum impact
- take part in writing workshops
- sharing and discuss work
- give and receive constructive feedback.
You are invited to bring along any examples of writing that you admire such as a favourite book, poem, article or song lyrics.
What will I gain?
By the end of the course, your writing will have greater drive, purpose, direction and quality to delight your readers.
You’ll have also developed a range of professional skills and enhanced your portfolio.
Level: Open to all
Entry requirement: You should have a passion for writing and an interest in developing your personal approach.
Where you'll learn: You will be studying creative writing in a UNESCO City of Literature, and be based in the School of Arts and Humanities on the City Campus.
You will find modern teaching spaces and quiet study environments to develop your ideas and writing.
You’ll also have access to our library to use outside of your short course; whilst you can’t reserve or take away books, you are welcome to use them as a resource for research and referencing.
