Prose: This Writing Business
They say that there’s a novel or story lurking in all of us. Here’s a chance to test this hypothesis, on this lively course that will take a look at a number of creative writing forms. The focus will be on prose writing and we’ll be looking at all aspects as you’re guided through the creative process, from initiating your novel or story, to planning and developing, and finally to completion. This will include sessions on structuring your work, and creating and developing your characters. This is done through workshops, amusing and supportive discussions, and one-to-one sessions with the tutors to discuss your work, all carried out in a pleasant atmosphere that will, hopefully, spur you on and inspire you to get writing.
This is through the medium of Welsh.
