Description

Writing Group meet via ZOOM alternate Mondays

Dates 2 November 2020 to 25 January 2021 (inclusive)

Price £120 for 12 weeks


If you are working on a specific writing project and/or want help developing your creative writing skills you might like to join a regular writing group. Improve your technique and benefit from the structure of regular workshops. I'm a published writer and an experienced editor. I run a writing group on Monday evenings and we currently meet every fortnight via Zoom.


On the Mondays we don’t meet, you submit work to me (max 500 words) for one to one feedback via email which will give you the opportunity to explore your own methods and writing rhythms at the same time as receiving guidance and support. The point of the course is to give you the ‘space’, once a week, to write whether in a group or alone at home. I'm now offering members of the group the opportunity to record a short piece of their work via my podcast on Anchor.fm 


We generally begin each class by reading and examining text/s which illustrate the various topics. This will be followed by writing exercises. In the final part of the session everyone reads aloud from their work. This takes place in a relaxed, safe environment. It is also intended to be a fun, social setting where you can meet new people, write, and share your words with others. Existing members of the group are warm and committed, work in various professions and range in age. You will be able to write and receive feedback in a supportive atmosphere. Some of the subjects we explore are character, dialogue, conflict, pace, tension, point of view, different genres, writing with intensity, climax and resolution, irony and editing. We often work towards entering some short story competitions and recently members of the group have been enjoying some success.
