Creative Writing Classes (19 and over)

 

Last year we focused on very brief stories and held a Flash Fiction workshop as part of the St Albans Literary Festival.

 

The course this term will be Episodes and Adventures.  We shall be creating characters, following them  through different adventures and discovering their stories whilst exploring tools of the  writer's trade such as Point of View and Pace.  There will be an opportunity each week to review your ongoing projects.

 

We are a friendly group and welcome new joiners. 

 

Taught by local award-winning, agented writer, Clare Hobba. Suitable both for beginners and those with more experience.

 

Two of our authors have been published.  Congratulations to K A Hitchins, one of our creative writing group, who has a second novel out now which developed from a creative exercise at one of our sessions.  For more information about her work, visit https://www.amazon.co.uk/Key-All-Kathryn-Hitchins/dp/190972856X/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1473409883&sr=1-1&keywords=the+key+of+all+unknown

"This is a great class, combining excellent teaching, group discussion, writing exercises and constructive feedback on your own writing project.  The best thing about it is the warm, supportive atmosphere, and the fact that we have fun together." KW

"I would recommend this class to writers of all abilities and levels of experience. The participants are friendly, enthusiastic and highly supportive to one another. It is facilitated by an excellent tutor, who allows individuals the freedom to write on topics of their choosing, using a variety of genres."TB

 

 

"I very much enjoy the classes. Teaching very good."

'As a novice writer, I have found this course to be both informative and entertaining. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. My fellow delegates are currently engaged in writing across several genres and are most supportive in exchanging views and ideas. I would highly recommend these sessions to new and more experienced writers alike.' TG
