About this course

Are you a scribbler, a secret diarist or a would-be journalist? Do you write professionally or as a hobby? Looking for fellow enthusiasts to share your ideas with and get feedback on your own work? Then look no further. Our Creative Writing course offers the opportunity to meet like-minded people and learn a variety of techniques to improve your writing process and enhance creativity.

The course content covers fiction, short stories, poetry and dialogue. You can also learn how to write feature articles, screenplays, news reports, travel writing etc. The syllabus is specifically designed for those who wish to write creatively but appropriate guidance is what they are lacking to realise their dreams.

Our experienced teachers understand this and will help guide you towards finding your unique writer’s voice. Once you join our Creative Writing course, you will realise that vibrant classrooms and interactive sessions are exactly what you need to begin your journey as a writer. The course is, however, not aimed at those wishing to improve their academic or technical writing.
