Descriptive Text, Imagery & the Senses Course
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 flash fiction texts and narratives to given themes and word counts as well as free writing.
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. Each week we will look at a different subject whilst continuing to learn various techniques and methods through exercises and grammar play.
Week 1: Focus is on Building Blocks of Writing
Week 2: Focus is on Metaphor and Imagery
Week 3: Focus is on Similes and the Senses
Week 4: Focus is on Continuing Work on the Senses
