Ready, Steady, Write! – An Online Creative Writing Course

Tutor: Dorothy Max Prior

Wednesdays 6–8 pm for 8 weeks

29 September to 17 November 2021 

Taught via Zoom - live streamed

Always wanted to write but never known where to start?

Write regularly but feel your writing needs a creative kickstart?

This eight-week course offers the opportunity to work with one of Evolution’s most experienced creative writing tutors. It is open to writers, or would-be-writers, keen to develop a regular writing habit. Everyone welcome, regardless of whether your interest is in prose fiction, creative non fiction, life writing, poetry, or anything else. Or perhaps you don’t yet know where your interest lies – we’re here to help you find out! 

There will be inventive suggestions for starting points, quick-fire creative writing prompts, and solid ideas for getting going and keeping at it. 

The weekly classes will be held on Zoom, and between-class reading and writing assignments will be set to stimulate the imagination and to nurture creativity. We aim to create a relaxed and supportive environment in the classes.

Absolute beginners and experienced writers are all very welcome!
