What will you learn on this course?

The course will bring some fun into creative writing and provide techniques for writing for children and techniques to improve creative writing. Carol’s approach is about building confidence and finding enjoyment as well as embracing the drafting process.

You will be encouraged to develop techniques in your own writing and explore the idea that writing is a process for continued development in order that you feel motivated to continue your work at home. The course may involve some group work and collaborative writing and students will have the opportunity to share their work and receive feedback.
