The course is an intense and inspiring environment in which to take your writing to the next level. You'll find yourself in a creative community focussed on the art and craft and business of writing. Through core writing classes with working writers, and skills-focused workshops with creative industry professionals, you'll hone your craft and develop a major project with which you will begin your life in writing.
