£144.00 for a 12 week term with an option not to attend two classes – 10 classes £120.00. Price includes a hot drink. You can join at any time. 

Facilitated by Sarah, the creative writing classes are perfect for people wanting to enhance their writing skills or simply have some fun, sculpting their ideas and getting feedback from the rest of the group. Every week Sarah will set a theme for you to explore including places, relationships and memories.  The classes will cover a range of genres of writing and use different materials to help fire your imagination!

From time to time, guest speakers join the group to share their writing experiences.  In summer 2022 Scarlett Ward Bennett, founder and editor of The Fawn Press, gave us a fascinating insight into the world of publishing and shared tips about how to get writing published. Former Staffordshire Poet Laureate Emily Rose Galvin visited the group earlier in the year and read from her new collection, The Dew Point.  We have also hosted award-winning journalist, Mary Murtagh, who entertained us with tales of being a reporter both here and abroad.  

Please bring some paper/notebook and pens/pencils.

Sarah has a Master's Degree in English Language and has had several non-fiction works published. She has been teaching and tutoring English Language and Literature for over twenty years, including seven years’ teaching creative writing.  She is looking forward to running a fun, supportive, interesting group where everyone can join in no matter how nervous you may feel about your abilities.

HAVING ALWAYS WANTED TO WRITE BUT HAVING GOT TO AN AGE WHERE I DOUBTED THAT I HAD ANY IMAGINATION LEFT, I WAS RATHER DUBIOUS ABOUT SIGNING UP FOR THE COURSE. BUT I NEEDN'T HAVE WORRIED. SARAH, THE TUTOR, HAS UNLOCKED SOMETHING LURKING WITHIN AND I HAVE STARTED TO WRITE CREATIVELY - IF ONLY TO PLEASE MYSELF SO FAR. THOROUGHLY RECOMMENDED.
