We are offering our first intensive one-week creative writing course in Johannesburg in September.
Running from Monday, September 3 to Friday, September 7, the course guides participants through the full range of writing skills from generating the initial idea to ending the story with a bang.
“We’re responding to people who either are reluctant to come out at night for our usual evening fare, or who would like a concentrated injection of writing skills,” says Allaboutwriting’s Richard Beynon.
The course is liberally interspersed with writing exercises to help participants consolidate their new skills. Course facilitators are novelist Jo-Anne Richards and script-writer Richard Beynon.
Allaboutwriting’s usual spring 10-week creative writing course begins on August 22. It takes place every Wednesday from 6:30pm to 9:30pm.
Both courses will be held at a venue in Craighall Park, Johannesburg.
“For aspiring writers who’re not ready to commit themselves to either of these two courses, we also hold a one-day introduction to creative writing,” says Beynon. “It’s our Power of Writing Course. We’re holding our next Power session on August 25 at AFDA in Auckland Park.”
The Power of Writing Course – like the flagship Creative Writing Course – is also available online.
