The class is suitable for both beginning and continuing creative writing students, working in either poetry or fiction. Students will spend their week responding to writing exercises designed to inspire, rather than inhibit. In class, they will receive gentle feedback on their work. The class takes place on Monday afternoons, 2-3.30pm, commencing on Monday, September 23rd, and runs for ten weeks.
