Do you love to write? Fancy becoming a professional writer, or taking a course that allows you to practise your writing skills? These new and exciting courses offer you that unique opportunity. You will study and practise writing across all types and genres: fiction-short story; the novel; scriptwriting; non-fiction: autobiography and poetry-all major forms. We will also introduce you to ideas about how to go about getting your work published and invite a series of professional writers to come and talk to you about their work and experiences as writers.
Everyone has a story to tell be that in the form of a novel, a script or a poem!
This course is your opportunity to tell your story, real or imaginary, and discover your writing voice and the best form in which it can heard. The Course will be delivered via lectures and supportive writing workshops where you have the opportunity to share your work and gain valuable feedback to help you develop your writing. You are encouraged to keep a reading and writing journal to map your development as a writer.
The course will be assessed via Agored Cymru units and submission of writing portfolios and reflective commentaries that explain the process you went through from initial ideas, drafting and final versions. You can achieve Level 3 or 2 from your submissions however, this is not compulsory if you wish to attend just for the sheer enjoyment and additionally enhance and develop your writing skills.
