This course is aimed at emerging poets and prose writers between the ages of 18 and 35. Whether working on a poetry collection, a novel, a short story collection, a work of non-fiction or experimenting across different genres, participants will receive invaluable guidance on their creative journey with tutors Alys Conran and Paul Henry.
Under the guidance of professional writers and guest speakers from the publishing and creative industries, sessions will concentrate on writing processes, including re-drafting and editing. Also integral to the experience will be advice on publishing, performing and publicising work. The course will provide an encouraging and safe space for a group of young writers to learn from the tutors and from each other. There will also be plenty of down-time for writing, and many additional activities such as socialising, walking, and even swimming in the sea.
