What Will You Learn?

Creative writing covers a wide variety of forms; simply, its purpose is to enable you to express, emotions, thoughts and feelings using the written word. If you would like to learn creative writing, improve your writing skills, to try out new techniques in a variety of writing styles and to be able to create compelling works of fiction, then this course will enable you to do just that.

There are so many opportunities for writers in this digital age and the world of publishing has evolved greatly over the last few years. Publishing is now accessible to all who have a good grasp of the English language and because the world is now a predominantly much smaller place through the rise of the digital era, it is possible to become published in many English speaking countries.

This creative writing online course does not just concentrate on publishing but on the skills required that will elevate your writing abilities to the dizzy heights of professionalism. There is pleasure in the written word, creating imaginary plots and forming descriptive scenes filled with vibrancy and colour will satisfy the need to create. The knowledge of how to craft a captivating short story and to possess the ability to craft larger than life characters will stimulate those creative juices.

If you choose the road towards publication, understand that it can be a long but enjoyable route towards success, while you absorb the craft and incorporate it into your own writing studies. Think of this learning curve as an apprenticeship as you polish and hone the skills that will provide an outlet for your creative thoughts and that could provide you with the skills to become a published writer.

While the emphasis is on enjoyment, the projects within will test your imagination and stretch your writing skills, so that you learn steadily and consistently throughout.
