The Revelation of Writing Part 1

Curso de Escritura Creativa Upper Street

A new, innovative course for developing creative and practical writing skills in English.

Do you need written English skills for work, formal studies, your favourite social media sites or a particular creative interest?

Would you like to develop greater confidence in your own voice on the page?

This course takes an in-depth look at 6 language tendencies to see how they can unlock the power in your writing and give it greater clarity and purpose.

In each session we will explore how and why we write in practical and participative activities that include reading, reflection and discussion. There are individual and collaborative writing activities in every class, as well as an opportunity to take a particular written task further.

Six, two-hour sessions, which run from January to March 2022. You will receive feedback on your writing as well as a mid-course one-to-one tutorial to discuss the option of writing a longer text.

Minimal level entry requirement C1.

Course price 200 euros.
