Creative writing

Are you someone whose dreams of winning prizes for your fiction have remained just that, dreams? Or a poet who hasn't quite managed to master rhyme and rhythm?

Or are you an avid reader who wants to take things to the next level? If you're any of these, or simply someone who loves to write and wants to learn new styles through which to channel your creativity, then this is the course for you. During the week, you will learn how to design written worlds from scratch, develop engaging narratives, bend the meaning of words in poetry, and skillfully draw images in writing, all whilst ensuring you keep your readers and listeners hooked with their mental cogs whirring. The course will take place at the world-renowned British Library. Its fantastic exhibitions will be your playground and its catalogues and vaults of ideas, your inspiration. Where else can you learn to write whilst surrounded by 25 million books? That's a lot of teachers, and a lot of experts. So, if you're a budding poet, an aspiring novelist, or an experimenter with a desire to write, sign up, take a leap and discover the power of the best tool on the planet, your imagination.
