“A very entertaining, informative and constructive course. The experienced tutor gave excellent feedback to help me evolve my stories and improve my writing style. The setting is relaxed, peaceful and informal. I greatly enjoyed the course and would highly recommend it.”
With the advent of the e-book and easy self-publishing, the possibility of writers reaching an audience has never been greater. The aim of the creative writing courses in Bute Park is to increase your confidence and know-how, no matter how much experience you have. Workshops will not aim to grade you but leave you with a clear idea to how to take forward each piece of writing.
Courses are normally of six weeks: if a student can’t make a workshop I normally make up for this via email feedback of their work. I guarantee a standard of tuition at least equal to that which you would receive on a university course.
The cost involved is straightforward: £10 per hour*. If you cannot afford this for reasons of unemployment or low pay, get in touch with me.
Since the first course in January 2013, four or more courses a year have been held in Bute Park, as well as day workshops, from which a thriving community of writers has developed. Anyone who takes part in a Parkwrite workshop or course is welcome to join our facebook group.
*Please note: as of June 2014 I have had to add a fiver to the overall cost of a course to meet an increase in the room hire rates.
