The course will be based around reading a variety of poetry, fiction, drama and literary nonfiction. Alongside this students will be encouraged to develop and progress their own creative work in all of these genres through writing exercises prompted by these examples. Students, if they wish, will also be able to pursue an individual project over the duration of the course where they will be able to develop a portfolio of work in a specific area of interest or around a single work.

Classes will be split into three sections:

  • close reading and analysis
  • individual writing time
  • and a workshop

Each week the group will critique students' work and read relevant contemporary and earlier examples of writing.

The course is suitable for beginners and improvers and runs for 8 sessions.
