I’m totally new to writing will the introduction courses be suitable for me?
Yes. They are specifically designed for new writers. The courses are informal and fun and your tutor is only an email away if you have any questions.
I want to attend a 6 week course but I can’t attend all the sessions
That’s fine as long as you let the tutor know in advance.
Will there be homework?
On both our 6 week introduction and our script development group you are required to bring work for feedback each week. However we understand that life can get in the way sometimes and if you haven’t done your work you can still of course attend the sessions.
What happens after the introduction courses?
Once you’ve completed one of our intro courses you will be invited to join our script development groups to continue to develop your writing.
Who attends the script development groups?
What makes these sessions so unique is the eclectic mix of people who attend. Once you’ve attended one of introduction courses you are eligible to attend our groups. We have writers who have only recently attended one of our courses and both professional and experienced writers.
How do the online groups work?
All you need is internet access and a web camera. You will be giving a login code for each session. Once you log on you will be able to upload your work to the meeting space, this gives you the opportunity to read people’s work in advance. Then the sessions will begin. The sessions are live and you will have direct access with your group of writers and tutor. The sessions are all recorded so you can watch at a later date.
What is the facilitators role?
Your tutor is there is offer advice, support and motivate you. They are also there to challenge your writing. Our sole purpose is to help you get the most out of your writing.
I want a 1-2-1 but I’m not sure how many sessions I want
That’s fine you can book as you go. You may book a couple and then have a break and come back. The sessions are bespoke. We ask that you tell us the areas you want help with and we draw up a plan of how we can work with you to help you achieve your writing goals.
Can I design my own course through the 1-2-1’s
Yes that’s the beauty of the sessions. Although there won’t be lectures as such, sessions can certainly have a focus such as structure and the tutor will design a session that will help you approach your current project to move through the areas that you need assistance with.
