This course is for anyone who likes the idea of writing creatively, and would like help in identifying their strengths and interests. Over the six sessions we will explore three areas of writing: life writing, short fiction, and poetry. We will look at examples of published work to consider the possibilities of each form, and – through fun workshop exercises in class – we will write our own pieces and share with the group. By the end of session six, students can expect to have generated a range of new work, and to have developed ideas about which writing projects or writing courses courses they might like to embark on next.   Sonia Lambert
