The Sea, The Sea
This is a brand new four week online workshop/course open to all levels rom absolute beginners to more experienced writers. Although we’ll mainly be working on poetry, the course is open to fiction writers and creative non fiction writers, there will even be the chance to try a little sort writing.
The course begins on 1st July 2020 and ends on 31st July 2020.
The last online course sold out in two days, so please please don’t leave it to the last minute, I may not be able to squeeze you in! x
What the Course Covers
Over the four weeks of the course we’ll be looking at your own personal relationship with the sea, your memories, your experiences, we’ll be looking at the wildlife and nature of the sea, we’ll be exploring the myths and folklore surrounding the sea and we’ll be writing about the industrial sea: the fisher folk and cargo ships, the clippers and the coal ships. I’m excited to share with you the coast line that I live by; the glorious Yorkshire coast, but we’ll also be travelling the world to see the sea in different cultures and landscapes. I hope you’ll join me for a paddle!
How the Course Works
The course will last the full month of July, with a daily prompt, weekly notes and poems, videos, links and other relevant material included as examples of the themes we’ll be covering, all of which is delivered directly to your email inbox. There’s also a closed facebook page where course attendees can share their work. The whole thing is moderated by myself and I interact with the group on a daily basis. I’m hoping to bring in a ‘live’ element to this course too, with a weekly get together.
Who the Course is Aimed at
The course is aimed at beginners through to established writers, there’s something for everyone. We’ll be working mainly in poetry, but there will be the opportunity to try your hand at fiction, creative non fiction and even some script writing. Whilst you are encouraged to push out of your comfort zone, you don’t have to write in both forms if you don’t want to.
The No Pressure Style
This is a no pressure course in which you do not have to produce anything, nor do you have to comment or even join the FB page. It is much more important to me that you relax and enjoy the course, enjoy the prompts and enjoy engaging with the course materials.
Sounds good doesn’t it! I’m really looking forward to having you on board

To make things fair, and to make sure that my courses are available to those on lower incomes, I have a tiered pricing system. Details below. And don’t forget, you can sponsor a place for a writer who doesn’t have the money to sign up. What a great gift that would be!
