Each module in this six-week online course will guide the participant towards producing a strong body of writing based around relevant exercises and prompts. You will receive weekly feedback from your tutor.
Week One: For those who have undergone a lapse or who need to freshen up existing writing practice, the first module discusses the importance of shoring up material for that all important writing arsenal.
Week Two: Time and Motion. We will discuss the concept of time in terms of using specific timelines within the short story or novel.
Week Three: Mapping – overcoming the initial difficulties when structuring a story. Mapping the narrative from start to finish.
Week Four: Flash Fiction. Engaging with Flash Fiction is a way of heightening fictional recognition and making sure the writer is not left with the feeling; ‘there’s a story in there somewhere, if only I could find it.’
Week Five: The Sensual Writer. This module aims to activate all five senses.
Week Six: Figurative Language. The final module will take the work to new levels as it explores, not only figurative language, but also the possibilities for creating ‘voice’ through a range of language possibilities.
