We all have different motives for writing and for some it’s a need. If you’ve completed our introductory course, or just feel inspired to shift your prose writing up a gear, these advanced classes will help you focus on short stories, life writing, a novel or perhaps a play.
During this course you’ll receive regular mail outs with advice and tips from novelist, teacher and journalist, Laurence Kennedy. Examining how other writers achieve their effects will help you develop your craft. You’ll also be able to read your own writing aloud, explore practical personal goals and benefit from supportive audience responses.
The course provides the opportunity to develop your characters and characterisation skills, look at how to manage pace, plot and story line. You’ll learn to decide what has to stay and what can go. Example passages from different periods and genres will help you to consider changing dialogue conventions and look at how to bring a setting to life with economy and force.
Your tutor will suggest deadlines to keep you progressing between classes and give realistic advice on ways to find an agent, if that’s what you’re after, and get published. You’ll be encouraged to write a minimum of 2000 words each week within a framework that makes sense.
