Creative Writing Introduction – Session 1 – Page 1

Introductions

Welcome to this Creative Writing Introduction Course brought to you by Our Place Camelon and Tamfourhill.  It has been prepared for online delivery and will be supplemented by videos from our experts and course leader.

  • Do you want to be the next J.K. Rowling and dream up a long running character like Harry Potter?
  • Do you want to recreate classic literature like Dickens’ works that will last for ever?
  • Do you want to write poems or plays?
  • Do you have a story to tell from your own life?

Whatever it may be at the moment, through these 6 sessions, we will give you an overview of how to get started, with hints and tips along the way to help you get into writing in its various forms.  There will be various practical tasks for you to do along the way that will take you through different styles of writing which might help you decide (if you haven’t already), what kind of writer you think you want to be, or what writing style you will have.

Once this course is completed, we’ll have other options that will focus on specific types of writing so that you can continue in your chosen field.
