Course Outline:

This 8 hr Creative Writing course currently retails at £55 GBP and until the payment gateway is activated on this website (work underway) any interested person needs to email me on: freewriterscentre@gmail.com and I can then arrange your payment and release all parts of the course to you including all written exercises, audio clips and some video clips.

This Creative Writing course acts as an extended masterclass looking at various techniques and exercises to open up and improve writing skills, work with metaphor and imagery, create texts and narratives to given themes and word counts as well as free writing. In this course you will acquire the many building blocks needed to strengthen your writing ability.

There is no criteria other than a willingness to open up one's writing; the course is designed that people of varying writing experience can participate and each draw their individual benefits.

Further Information

Each course contains in-class exercises and home assignments - there is a suggestion to take one session of your course per week, however you can decide to apply yourself differently and individualise your study time approach as you need. All the work is given as written exercises with written explanations, extra handouts/worksheets, audio sections, video sections and research links. Within the basic course payment you are able to send me one home assignment and I will look over it, suggest any edits and give you feedback on that work. Regarding the in-class exercises per session - I consider the amount of explanation adequate for self study but you also have the option to go on the discussion forum and receive peer support, discuss with other students and writers – also of course to share and network and I will also be part of various discussions occurring there. You have a further option to buy in extra personal tuition time with me via opt-in Skype/Webinar sessions where you can go over any questions you have about any aspect of the course or your work.
