Writers of all levels welcome to this workshop-style course which will give students the opportunity to share their short fiction, life writing or memoir. We will kick off every week week with interesting and inspiring writing exercises as well as discussions on any issues arising in the writing process. In each session a designated number of students will share extracts of their prose and receive supportive and constructive feedback on aspects of writing such as character, structure, tone, voice, dialogue etc. Giovanna will provide handouts on elements of style and written targets for homework. Over 6 weeks students will develop confidence and drafting skills as well as the stamina to continue their creative projects on their own beyond the course confines.

Poets of all levels of experience welcome to this workshop course that shows you where poems come from and how they build and grow. Each week unique and inspiring poetry-making approaches will be shared. Every session will show you how to unlock poems and illuminate subjects ranging from everyday experiences to world events, enabling participants to explore the epiphanies of their own lives and the world around them. Supportive and constructive feedback will be shared. It will be friendly, it will be fun and it will occasionally rhyme (but not all of the time).

Are you looking for confidence, support and motivation in writing your novel? This six week class is designed for writers who have begun or are halfway through their novel, and who would like to refine their writing skills, develop self-discipline and need support and feedback. Classes will involve exercises, looking at the mechanics of fiction and how to perfect them, and how to set goals for yourself. The group will look closely at each other’s writing to assess what is working and what needs to be further developed.
