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 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.

Reviews of courses can be found here.   Info on the venue 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.
