With tutor Gemma Bolwell

Whether you wish to write a short story, a piece of flash fiction or autobiography, or a full-blown novel, this course is designed to help you on your way. We will seek inspiration from established writers through watching videos and reading their advice on how to tackle the writing process. We will then explore a range of different narrative structures and voices, as well as considering setting, theme and character. Towards the end of the course we’ll delve into reviewing and editing our work, and consider what shape the next stage of our writing journey may take.
