Creative writing at the Astor Theatre – January 2017

Whether you are just setting out as a writer for the first time or building on previous experience, this course will provide a platform for you to work on character, setting, structure and story. The course will feature a mix of writing exercises, workshop sessions, personal feedback on prose or poetry, and a light (non-compulsory) reading list designed to inspire and engage you.

The course is suitable for all levels of experience and confidence. £80 for 8 sessions. The evening course on Mondays is fully subscribed and there is a waiting list to join. There is a Wednesday morning course starting in January 2017. This will run weekly from 10 am - 12 noon and follow the same curriculum as the evening class.
