Overview of course

Aiming to develop our own practice through inspiration, we will use stimulus texts each week to spark off our own ideas. The course assumes a willingness both to share our own work and to listen to and comment on that of others. We will explore poetic genres that range from highly stylised forms such as sonnets and lyric poetry through to imagism and free verse. Prose narratives will be focused on the short story form but there will be chances to experiment with modes such as stream-of-consciousness writing, allegory, gothic writing and creative non-fiction.

What will I learn?

Week 1: short fiction - structure, style and the judicious withholding of information

Week 2: short fiction - ambivalent characters

Week 3: narrative forms - stream of consciousness and verse forms

Week 4: compacting meaning - free verse

Week 5: structural discipline - sonnets and lyric poetry

Who is the course for?

This short course with a supportive ethos welcomes complete beginners, literary dilettantes and those who are already practising writers to work together.

Will I have to provide anything?

Notepad, Pen and Pencils.
