Introduction to Creative Writing – Online

Complete at your own pace! You are guided through the modules of the course by your own personal, one-on-one tutor, an internationally published author. 


The course is intended to introduce you to the skills and techniques that make story-telling so enjoyable. You might already keep a journal, or have written some poetry or short stories, but would like to discover the tools professional writers use to make their work publishable. 


These modules show you how to mine your own life and imagination for compelling stories; how to understand a powerful story-telling template called the Hero’s Journey that stretches back thousands of years; how to create powerful scenes, with a beginning, middle and end; how to knit these scenes together into a riveting story; how to show rather than tell; how to write sizzling dialogue and how to write with an ear for the musical and rhythmic qualities of language.


You will learn the five common traps that beginner writers fall into. At the end of the course you will have a finely crafted story of your own choosing.


As you complete each module, you will receive personal feedback on your work and will begin to discover your own authentic voice.
