A new Introduction to Creative Writing course starts in February in Cómpeta, in the Axarquía region of Andalucia.
Have you always had a secret hankering to write but don’t know where to start? Have you written previously but feel a bit rusty?
Introduction to Creative Writing will guide you gently into the writers’ life, help you gain confidence and give you the space and time to experiment and share your ideas in a safe and friendly environment.
In this 8-week course we will explore the basics, looking at what makes writing work and having a go at fiction, poetry, life writing and nature writing.
