Each class requires a minimum number of enrolments to start. We will advise if this is not achieved and we have to cancel the class before the term starts. Once the class starts there can be no refunds unless we have to cancel the class due to unforeseen circumstances.
Do you have a story waiting to be told or need inspiration? This course teaches the basics of plot structure, character development, setting, mood, writing good dialogue, and creating internal and external conflict that engages your audience.
By using specific writing exercises, you will be supported to plot the first draft of your short story, novel, novella, screenplay, or stage play (any format is welcome!). Throughout the process, you will gain valuable feedback and guidance in a group setting. But don’t worry, you don’t have to share anything if you’re not ready!
This course is designed for beginners but would also suit those who have experience and want inspiration from other writers. Being part of a group is immensely helpful at any level, as you will be able to bounce ideas, gain valuable feedback, and have external motivation to follow through with your goals.
This course is ideal as a two term project as there is a second component that comes in the second term.
