About the courses

about pix“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 are neither precious nor competitive: their purpose is not to grade you but leave you with a clear idea of how to take forward each piece of writing.

“Everyone has got something that others don’t have and the trick is to find that thing and use it well” – Tom Rosenthal.

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, I’ve held over a hundred and seventy workshops in Bute Park and Chapter Arts Centre, a number of students have gone on to be published, and a thriving network of writers has developed.

Reviews of courses can be found here.  

*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.

  1. What times on Sundays? Important as need to explore times and bus stops for public transport. Also is there an age limit? I am 78 years of age.
