Meet the Author Colum Sanson-Regan, a novelist, short story and script writer.
This is an ideal course for those who have completed the Writing Fiction and Non-Fiction for Beginners course and who want to continue the writing they have developed on that course, or for someone who has a writing project and could do with inspiration, guidance and support to bring the project to completion.
Each week is made up of two essential elements: Workshopping and text analysis.
The workshopping is participants bringing their work in development in, and the class go through it with a constructive criticism which is supportive to the writer’s goals. This can be invaluable to look at issues such as characterisation, plotting, setting and more.
Text analysis involves looking at different short stories and each week deals with approaches to different themes and styles of narrative, designed to challenge and inspire your writing.
Each week there is a thematic writing exercise set which you are encouraged to integrate into your writing project, or just use as a stand-alone writing exercise.
