About Creative Writing - Prose 5 week course

This ticket is for a 5 week course starting 21st February 2018

7-9pm

Please join us for a creative writing workshop – broken up into two 5 week chunks with flexible poetry classes so come along for one or more of these sessions. Alternatively you can book a block of just poetry or prose, or if you are really keen to develop your writing come along to the whole 10 week session. Even if your first love is not prose/poetry, the workshops will help develop your skills as a writer.

I believe that writing cannot be taught --  but it can be learnt, and this is where I start from. The classes are for anyone who cultivates a, “beginners mind” – new writers, experienced writers, all are welcome. We will use exercises and prompts and produce work during each session.  Workshops will take place in a supportive and friendly atmosphere, and we will learn how to supportively critique each other’s work. You will read your work at a Flowetry event run through Wynwood Art/Locus of Walthamstow at a date TBC.

PROSE: we will look at structure for short stories but these can be expanded and applied to other longer forms of narrative, including novels, plays and screenplays.

Week 1:          Where to begin? Finding a voice/subject/inspiration.

Week 2:          Creating a character. Monologues

Week 3:          Plot. The Hero’s Journey.

Week 4:          Dialogue. Point-of-View.

Week 5:          Editing. Self-Assessment.

We will carry out exercises and workshop each other’s writing throughout the course

 

I have run successful Creative Writing Workshops at Kensington and Chelsea College and have had my poems published in a number of small press journals and zines, including The Los Angeles Review, Concrete, Remark and the recent Wynwood Art fanzines.
