Get Writing: an Introduction to Creative Writing 6-week online course

Get Writing is our core course that’s all about encouraging you to develop your own creative writing. Each week we look at an aspect of the craft that will help you to express your ideas, memories and stories on the page.

Well thought out weekly headings.  Professional layouts on weekly handouts.  Supportive leaders, who inspire confidence. JD

Exercises and short homeworks will give you a chance to put into practice what you learn and you’ll have an opportunity to share your work in a supportive and constructive environment.

Prompted by the Covid-19 crisis, we’re now offering Get Writing as an online course, via Zoom. As close as you can get to a face-to-face writing class without leaving your home, this live-taught course is limited to 10 participants.

Why do this course now?

Creative writing can be one of the best ways to give you imagination wings. What better way to escape lockdown than through the imagination?

I’ve really enjoyed this course – especially the practical elements within each session, where procrastination was not available to me… The main thing was – I did get writing and managed all the set homework and it has opened my eyes to a variety of styles and methods. VI

Duration: 2 hours per week for 6-weeks.

Zoom is free to use and works on most tablets, smartphones and computers that have a webcam. For the best experience we advise you to find a quiet place to sit, or if this isn’t possible, use a USB headset with a microphone. More information can be found at
