Ty Newydd Courses 2018 - Booking now open
Mon 1 Jan 2018 to Mon 31 Dec 2018
Next year is Year of the Sea in Wales, and where better to start your new creative writing project than at Ty Newydd Writing Centre overlooking Ceredigion Bay and its wild waves of inspiration.
Next year, we will experiment with a greater number of weekend courses for writers eager for a taste of what Ty Newydd can offer. These short, affordable courses include Writing about Climate Change, Translating Poetry and Prose, Writing Historical Fiction, Haiku, Poetry and Songwriting and a course on telling and re-telling myths, legends and fairy tales.

There will be a number of week-long courses available also. Many giants in the field of poetry will visit Ty Newydd as tutors throughout the year, including Lemn Sissay, Jo Shapcott, Maura Dooley, Gillian Clarke, Pascale Petit and Carol Ann Duffy, and courses will vary from poetry for beginners to Poetry Masterclasses.

Our prose offerings will include courses in the detective and romance genres; short stories with Tyler Keevil and Rachel Trezise; and Writing Your Novel with Alys Conran and Louis de Bernières, the author of Captain Corelli’s Mandolin. Also offered is a course on writing for children, and another for writing for young adults featuring award-winning Kiran Millwood Hargrave, the author of The Girl of Ink & Stars as our guest reader.

Writing for radio and the stage will feature in the programme, and Dirty Protest will reside at the centre for the duration of a course on Playwriting and Theatricality tutored by Hamish Pirie and Tim Price. Courses in non-fiction, storytelling, and creative writing for Welsh-learners will also return next year.
