Join us for a fun and productive creative writing course that focuses on myth and imagination, beginning on February 12.
Suitable for writers of all levels of ability and ambition, whether writing flash fiction, short stories or novels. We’ll look at myths, creation stories and fairy tales and examine how to use the archetypal characters and magical elements from within them to create intriguing fictional worlds. What would you do if you met Cinderella begging for kindling outside a supermarket? What would an ocean god want to say to surfers and fishers? What if you could invent a whole fictional world that was run by talking mice?
