This October, set the writer in you free
If the yearning to write is in your blood, then to stifle or ignore it is a crime. Our writing programmes – both face-to-face and online – encourage and shape that yearning to help you tell the stories that are bubbling inside you.
Telling our own stories in our own individual ways is a fundamental human right. It’s the way in which we celebrate what it is to be part of the human race and, just as importantly, what it is to be me.
So scan the courses below. Each is a path to the skills you need to tell your story in your own individual voice.
And at the end of every path you’ll have earned the right to bring out the balloons, let loose the streamers and pop the champagne corks.
Sign up today and set the writer inside you free!
