Would you like to explore the many exciting possibilities of creative writing? Want to experiment with style and technique? Do you want to write more boldly? Or simply write more often? This course - suitable for new writers as well as those with some experience – is designed to get you writing, and keep you writing. In a supportive, fun environment, you will be encouraged to explore different writing techniques. Let Lara guide you through a range of stimulating, thought-provoking exercises – all designed to kindle – or rekindle – a passion for writing.

Tutor Lara Clough, is a published novelist and playwright, her novel Facing into the West Wind was reviewed in the Guardian as “a tender and perceptive tale of secrets”, 2006. She has been teaching a wide range of courses for the last five years and finds poetry and script writing especially stimulating and thought provoking for all. Students enjoy the supportive and encouraging environment she provides in her classes. Two active poetry groups have grown up from her classes and several students have gone onto MA Creative Writing courses.
