How will I be taught?
Through exercises and discussion, you will hone your writing skills and cover topics appropriate to life writing. You will study some autobiographical examples as well as engaging in practical writing activities. You will be encouraged to keep a file of your research and your written output.
Initial assessment will be carried out at the beginning of the course to assess your skill level. Each student's starting point will be recorded on an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) and targets will be set. This will be revisited during the course to monitor and record progress. Feedback on your work will be given in class by the tutor and fellow students in a supportive and friendly environment.
Work for home study will be given and will be discussed at the start of the next session. This may include research as well, background reading and imaginative writing.
What do I need to bring with me?
The minimum requirement is pen and paper. To get more from the course, access to a computer and printer is useful.
What can I do next?
