How can we tend to our creativity over the winter? The short days and cold weather mean we spend more time indoors, and in theory we have more time for writing. It’s a great time for setting new writing intentions, but easier to keep going if you have the support of others. This month-long course will include daily prompts and weekly Zoom sessions. Starting on the first day of the new year, you will receive a writing prompt every day for the whole of January. Once a week, on Tuesday evening, there will be a Zoom meeting, where we will recap on the week and spend some time writing together, followed by a sharing session where people can read out their work.
How the Course Works
Every Monday and Friday you will receive an email with that day’s writing task, as well as notes on the task and links to relevant examples. You can complete the course on your own by working through these exercises if you wish, and there is no pressure to share your work. However, if you would like to interact with your fellow course members, there will be a Zoom session every Tuesday where we will write together, and well as share our work and feedback.
Who is the course aimed at?
The course is aimed at anyone who would like to establish a creative writing practice. It might be the first time you have ever tried writing creatively, or you may have experience but would like some writing support through these challenging times. During the course you will have a go at writing fiction, creative non-fiction and poetry. The exercises are all short so the course can be fitted into a busy life.
The cost for the month is £55 or £35 for low incomes. Please decide which of these options applies to you.
