Workshops

Words and stories help to shape our lives. As humans, we have the unique ability to create, listen to, and write stories both for ourselves and for others. 

To know how to translate ideas into a story that attracts readers and listeners alike is a wonderful gift. Without stories, the world would be a duller place entirely.

 

So, if you have a passion for stories too, or have an idea but don't know how to turn it into words, then a writing course could be the answer. Have a browse through the courses offered below and see if any suit you and your creative writing needs.

It was great to have someone young and successful to talk to the students - you really connected well with them.

We liked the creative writing exercises and the students found them interesting and stimulating.
