Creative Writing - Finding Your Voice

Introduction

This  course is designed for both beginners and more experienced writers who are wishing to develop their own style and voice.

The course comprises of workshop-led two hour sessions in which the class will draw on exercises to unlock the individual writer’s greatest strengths, focusing on style, story and emotional resonance.

Participants will cover a variety of forms and find the one best suited to the individual, so that by the end of the course each will have a short story, opening chapter of a novel, a scene for a play or screenplay, or poem.

The objective is to stimulate the imagination in a supportive environment and to foster a love for the writing process that will continue long after the course has ended.

The course is taught by Lisa Harding whose award-winning novel, Harvesting, has just been optioned for the screen by the BAFTA-winning director of the Channel 4 series The Derry Girls.

Testimonial

The creative writing course at Blackrock Further Education Institute provided both a comprehensive introduction to creative writing and also an opportunity to meet like-minded individuals in the area.

 

The teacher, Lisa Harding, was an inspiration and was adept at bringing the best out of us all. Since taking the course in the autumn of 2014, I have been published by the The Incubator Journal, Carried in Waves, Short Fiction Break and have been short-listed for the Over the Edge New Writer of the Year award. I highly recommend the course to anyone looking to explore their potential in creative writing.
