This Creative Writing for All is designed to provide students with an opportunity to write creatively and spontaneously in a range of genres, and to share their work with other writers in a safe and supportive environment. Using a wide variety of resources to inspire and stimulate writing, the course will enable students to explore different narrative techniques, styles and tones, and engage actively in the process of recording thoughts, ideas and information in writing.
By the end of this course, students will have
• Engaged actively in the writing process
• Created believable characters and plots in range of fictional genres
• Explored some aspect of poetic form or technique
• Used writing as a form of recording, reporting and/or reflecting information
and should also be able to constructively evaluate their own and others’ work
Similar courses are available each term, but the content does not repeat; each term’s course is distinct and separate. Each course involves reading and note taking, but also provides copious opportunities to write creatively, imaginatively and informatively.
