What writers are saying about the Online Learning Centre:
‘This course was pretty much perfect for someone like me - someone who's not completed a creative writing piece since high school (20 years ago), but has recently rediscovered the fun of mucking around with words... The online course format gave me time to arrive fresh at each exercise, which meant I could really get the most out of each of them.’
‘I love that it made me finish a piece to the best of my current ability, and that it allowed me to explore and articulate what it is that I get from writing... When I enrolled in the course my hope was that I'd learn some techniques to better enjoy writing, and that's exactly what I've got.’
