Brand new for September, a new course for your delectation: Talking to the Ancestors.
Talking to the Ancestors
This is a brand new four week online workshop/course open to all levels from 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.
The course begins on 1st September 2020 and ends on 30th September 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 ancient civilisations including the ancient Egyptians, the Mayans, ancient Britons and The Romans. We’ll be using artefacts, myths, legends and ruins as inspiration to bring these ancient civilisations to life through creative writing.
How the Course Works
The course will last the full month of September, with a slightly different format of five prompts; delivered Monday to Friday on a daily basis, 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, give and receive feedback and interact with other course members. The whole thing is moderated by myself and I interact with the group daily. New for this course will be two forty minute zoom sessions, in the middle and at the end of the course, where course members can chat and share their work. Also new to this course is the option to receive detailed feedback on up to four pieces of work, at the end of the course. See the payment section further down for details.
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 can stick to the style of writing you prefer, if you 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.
How to Sign Up
I now have a simple payment method in my shop where you can make a payment to sign up. If the email address you want your course materials, and your facebook group invite, sent to is different to your PayPal address, let me know by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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!
