Creative Writing

Are you eager to test the waters of creative writing but not sure where to start? Or how to start?

Have you written previously but been away from it? Or never studied before?

Our creative writing course will guide you surely and safely into the writing life. You will expand your powers of observation, imagination, and language. You will collect numerous tips on craft and practices. You will be exposed to various forms of creative writing in the fields of prose fiction and nonfiction.

Creative writing is one of the most stimulating and fulfilling ways to express yourself, and you’re never too young or too old to explore its wonders. So come on in. The water’s fine.
