This course is aimed at emerging poets and prose writers between the ages of 18 and 35. Whether you’re working on a poetry collection, a novel, a short story collection, a work of non-fiction or experimenting across different genres, you’ll receive invaluable guidance on your creative journey. Under the guidance of professional writers and guest speakers from the publishing and creative industries, we’ll concentrate on your writing processes, including re-drafting and editing. Also integral to the experience will be advice on publishing, performing and publicising your work. The course will provide an encouraging and safe space for a group of young writers to learn from the tutors and from each other. There will also be plenty of down-time for writing, and many additional activities such as socialising, walking, and even swimming in the sea.

This course is run in partnership with Parthian BooksWales Arts Review and Poetry Wales.
