Creative writing #23

"We always think the thing we need to transform everything - the miracle - is elsewhere, but often it is right next to us. Sometimes it is us, ourselves". - Jeanette Winterson

Creative Writing is an art, and like painting, sculpture or composing music it requires technique in order to facilitate the imagination. Classes include: Writing as Discovery; Detail; Metaphor and Imagery; Narrative Strategies; Vulnerability; Extreme Writing; Truth, Originality and Dialogue; Voice; The Rut and The Groove; The Conscious, The Unconscious and the Self-conscious; Mood; Poetics; Paradox; Editing and many more. 
We learn to support each other and reveal our differences. Beginners are absorbed and gently brought on by contact with more experienced students. We produce a booklet of work at year’s end and go on an inspirational excursion.

Wednesdays, 9.30am - 12pm

Tutor: Susan Temby.  $245 for a 9 week term
