This course is great for beginners and also for writers at any level who wish to generate lots of new ideas and material. This fun and playful course will use different creative writing exercises and prompts to get you working, in a friendly and supportive environment. We will set out from a new starting point each week, and experiment with different techniques and ways into prose writing.
Week 1) Place (mental maps and sensory detail)
Week 2) People (picture prompts and character sketches)
Week 3) Objects
Week 4) Food
Week 5) Gaps (collage and “found text”)
Week 6) Journeys. All levels welcome.
Social distancing and self-isolation are not incompatible with writing. Shakespeare himself is rumoured to have written King Lear while quarantined. It can be helpful to write in challenging times and to be part of a friendly group, focusing on your writing or engaging in a new creative writing course.
Collage Writing Room’s Summer 2020 programme is set to run online and our tutors are busily getting used to delivering courses via Zoom video link up. We will give you lots of help setting this up. It is free for you to use. Your course is only a few clicks away! You don't have to be seen on screen if you are camera shy, and if you don't fancy tidying the house, we can show you how to choose a neutral backdrop! If you don't want to join the video side, tutors can send you the exercises/reading lists/feedback via email. We have been using the technology successfully to deliver all our options in the past few weeks. We hope you will join us after the Easter break.
