Creative Writing Courses
Covering a six-week period, the Elements of Fiction course consists of one two-hour workshop each week and five assignments to be completed at home and submitted by email for assessment.
Each weekly session will focus on a set topic, covering one of the essential elements required for writing fiction. Each assignment will be marked and returned prior to the next session. Learning the various elements through practical application, together with the workshops, will gradually build towards a complete understanding of how to create stories with that ‘must read’ quality.
Week One: Discovering the essential elements of fiction
Week Two: Creating characters readers will care about
Week Three: Writing effective dialogue
Week Four: Use of settings and backstory
Week Five: Plotting, structure and theme
Week Six: Putting it all together
Dates and venue to be decided.
