This is an 8 week course which is aimed at those who are more confident in their writing and are looking for some guidance and further prompts to keep writing.
A set scheme of work will take you through the term touching on different subjects and ideas.
A class anthology will be completed by the end of term, and you will also be invited to enter the class Flash Fiction competition.
Class discussion and the sharing of ideas is a very good way to learn to analyse your own work and develop your ideas.

Each workshop will deal with a different theme or objective, and we will be concentrating on -
Characterisation and Narrative Voice
Recreation of Plot
Memories and Childhood
The Impact of Sound and Colour
We will also be looking at the impact of poetry on literature, and how narrative through poetry can sometimes produce a greater emphasis – some learners may find they are more inclined to producing poetical text rather than prose.
Learners will look at a variety of published works as examples of the above, and work towards creating their own pieces of work. This may be a re-creation of earlier work, or work produced within the workshops. Work will be produced in class and homework set will be discussed at the next session. This will help with the development of your writing.
