Creative Writing I - Getting Started
Writing can be a very lonely and daunting activity for many writers, but especially in the case of the beginner writer. Without the right encouragement it can be all too easy to never pick up your pen, or worse still, give up after only just beginning. Our tutors aim to get you writing, and keep you writing. If you have already started writing, our purpose is to encourage you to keep going, especially when the going gets tough.

Why our online courses are better

dotIn the unlikely event that you need help with the software, we offer excellent technical support by email or telephone throughout the duration of the course, no query is too small or too big.

dotBlankOur virtual conference room is always open. You can log on at a time that suits you and from absolutely anywhere in the world. Our students come from all walks of life and from as far away as New Zealand, Dubai, China, USA, South Africa, Norway and Afghanistan.

dotblankYou do not have to be online at the same time as your colleagues or your tutor when you log on, which means you can never be late or too early for class.

dotblankIf you have an IPhone, IPad or other mobile device you can get your free app and join in “on the go”.

dotblankWhile the classroom may be virtual, your tutor is a very real and experienced person, who will give you very real guidance and encouragement.

dotblankYou receive weekly course notes, writing exercises and writing assignments. There is no right or wrong amount of writing to do but your tutor will encourage you to write what you can, given your own personal commitments.

dotblankYou are encouraged to share your writing work/assignments with your tutor and colleagues to read and comment on. The more assignments you complete the more feedback you will get, which is enormously helpful in developing your writing skills.

dotblankWe like small groups. Studies have shown that people work more effectively online when they are in small groups. This is why we keep our course groups to between 6 and 10 students.

dotblankEach course runs for ten weeks in real time (which includes the orientation week) and offers excellent value for money.
