Introduction to Prose Fiction and Creative Writing

Unthank Logo V2Organised by the wonderful Unthank School, I am leading a ten week course in Brighton, two hours every Sunday afternoon, starting April 6th. The course is for those new to creative writing or who are looking for encouragement to continue.

The focus will be to stop thinking about writing and to actually write. Whether you want to write fiction, memoir or creative non-fiction, the course will support you to write through whatever fear and uncertainty you might have, without preconceived ideas about what or how you should write. Whether you write from personal life, intuition or imagination, you will be guided to step out of your own way and open up your ‘child eyes’ to whatever wants to be expressed on the page.

The weekly sessions will include practical exercises, readings and discussion. You will be gently encouraged to finish at least one complete piece by the end of the course.

“A writer is not so much someone who has something to say as he is someone who has found a process that will bring about new things he would not have thought of if he had not started to say them.”
