Advanced Writing Workshops 2017-2018


CWP in collaboration with New Writing South

Tutors: Susannah Waters, Catherine Smith

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 working at this advanced level. 

Course details

Every month your group will meet to review and discuss work in progress and explore aspects of writing technique. These sessions will be organised by your writing tutor though there will be opportunities for writers to present work, suggest topics for discussion and share practical exercises should they so wish. Though the emphasis will be on critiquing work in progress there will be opportunities to discuss wider relevant issues like individual creativity, managing the writing process and literary culture and the publishing industry. Between meetings you will be able to share work and ideas with other writers in the group through the interactive webpage for your course on the Creative Writing Programme website.
