The Creative Writing Programme: Advanced Writing Workshops 2023-2024 with Laura Wilkinson
Wed 11 Oct 2023 to Wed 10 Jul 2024
This higher-level course has been designed for writers who have completed either the Creative Writing Programme, an undergraduate or a masters programme in creative writing, or who have work in progress and can show they are capable of discussing the creative process and participating in workshops at an advanced level. Monthly from October 2023 to July 2024.

The aim of this course is:
to provide a forum for writers who are committed to finishing novels or collections of short stories and who are looking for a critical and supportive audience for their work in progress.
to act as a place where writers can meet regularly to discuss the creative process and inspire and energise each other.
All courses have their own interactive learning page on our website where writers can communicate, access course materials and submit work.

Every month your group will meet to:
workshop work in progress and discuss aspects of writing technique.
take part in a three-hour session which will consist of group workshops, with three members submitting 5,000 words for constructive feedback each month
critique and discuss work in progress, particularly the coherence and integrity of plot, structure and characterisation.
As well as the opportunity to workshop longer pieces of work, you will be able to submit three extracts of 2,000 directly to your tutor for feedback and guidance.

Programme length
One year in monthly sessions (3 hours) on Wednesday evenings 6pm-9pm. Maximum group size 15

Entry requirements
Writers will need to submit a 2000 word extract (with a short synopsis where necessary) along with a covering letter identifying relevant experience of working in writing groups, listing any publications and offering a brief outline of their writing project.
