Creative Writing: Introduction
'Creative Writing : Introduction' is designed for those with no experience of creative writing; however, it is open to other writers as well. As the objective of the course is to help writers publish their work, it introduces participants to categories of Creative Writing as publishers and producers understand them. Participants will have the opportunity to write in a variety of mediums such as poetry, short fiction, screenplays and stageplays. We will also discuss genres such as horror, sci-fi and realistic fiction. Group and facilitator feedback will be a very regular feature of this course. These objectives will enable participants to progress in the field of creative writing, whether the aim is to cultivate a rewarding hobby or ultimately develop a professional practice.
Cost: €110 or €100 Concessions
