Creative Writing courses lead by published authors to prepare budding writers for a career in writing.
Date: 21 January 2019
The Cass is launching a new set of Creative Writing short courses, aimed at people who have just begun to take an interest in creative writing, or those who already have some experience.
Taking place at the Holloway campus, each course centres on a core principle of creative writing and expands upon it, providing the students a bigger scope of creative intelligence. These courses are currently the only professional creative writing part-time short courses available in the borough of Islington.
An Introduction to Writing Children's Stories will be led by Marianne Levy, author of five children’s books, such as the Ellie May series. Marianna has also written for the BBC, The Guardian and The Financial Times, and is also a regular contributor to The Independent. This course is suitable for beginners and will cover the basics of writing for children, covering topics such as creating memorable characters; finding your unique writing voice; developing exciting and engaging plots; and using appropriate, enticing language. This course starts 11 May, and runs for eight consecutive Saturday mornings.
To book a place on one or all of these courses, please visit the short courses eShop. London Metropolitan staff and students get 20% off, yet there are a limited number of concessionary places.
