Creative Writing Programme

Creative Writing Programme logo

New Writing South is proud to be a key partner in the Creative Writing Programme, one of the leading creative writing programmes in the South East. Our venue, The Writers’ Place, is home to many of the programme’s annual courses.

Enrolment for all courses is now open.

 

These programmes offer you an opportunity to develop your writing skills on a practical course of study, designed to university-level standards. You will work closely with your tutor and a small group of other writers, and through the Creative Writing Programme website you will be able to keep in touch with your course, contact fellow writers and read summaries and notes from your seminar sessions. With years of experience of teaching creative writing and an extensive knowledge of the publishing world behind them, Creative Writing Programme tutors are professionally committed to helping you develop your potential as a writer.

It’s not just what you learn on the programme that will aid your development as a writer; you will also build up a network of friends and contacts that will sustain your writing in the future.  Many writers who have come through The Creative Writing Programme have had their work published, performed or broadcast. You can read more about the Creative Writing Programme here and read the Terms and Conditions for all courses on the Creative Writing Programme here.

In the event of a resurgence of the coronavirus pandemic and/or any restrictions on social gatherings, courses will be taught via Zoom (a video conferencing platform) for the duration of the restrictions. Find out more about this
