National Centre for Writing: Writing Fiction: Next Steps (Online)
Mon 21 Sep 2020 to Thu 4 Mar 2021
Award-winning writer Anjali Joseph teaches creative writing on this six-month advanced course. The course focuses on the short story, but the techniques we look at are equally relevant to the novel. You can study the course from anywhere and Anjali will be on hand to provide feedback on your writing, including one-to-one tutorial sessions. Designed by the University of East Anglia and the National Centre for Writing.

This course builds on the expertise acquired at introductory level, and introduces more depth and a wider range of reading and approaches to fiction. At this level you will acquire and experiment with more techniques, broaden the possibilities you’re ready to explore in your writing, and reconnect with finding a sense of play and adventure in your writing.

Anjali Joseph did the MA course in Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia, where she also taught creative writing to undergraduates for four years. She teaches at the Arvon Foundation and elsewhere. Saraswati Park (2010), her first novel, won the Desmond Elliott and Betty Trask Prizes, and was joint winner of the Vodafone Crossword Book Award for Fiction in India.
