Aimed at people new to writing, this class is designed to inspire your imagination with prompts and ideas. We shall also look at a different technical aspect of writing each week, from crafting tantalising openings to reaching a satisfying resolution. If you are interested in writing short story, flash fiction, memoire, blogs or novels, then this is the class for you.
Each week, we shall listen to and review each other’s writing.
The class will take place on Zoom. Clare is experienced at teaching interactive classes successfully online.
