This eight-module course is designed for people who’ve been writing for a while but are feeling a bit stuck, or for people who used to write but haven’t in quite some time. The eclectic mix of assignments is designed to nudge you out of your comfort zone and play around with different approaches to getting words down on the page, and the feedback provided will help you identify your strengths as well as opportunities for improvement.

This course is suitable for people working in all forms (fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, drama). It is conducted via a private online classroom, giving participants the opportunity to interact with one another as well as getting feedback from their tutor/s. Participants can log in at whichever time/s during the week suit them; there’s no need to be online at specific times.

(It is not a requirement to take Creative Writing Kickstart 1 before this course. The different Kickstart courses alternate throughout the year.)
