Establish a writing routine, build skills and receive constructive feedback with a live evening course from the National Centre for Writing
Designed to grow your practice, we offer live writing classes to suit a range of writing abilities. Each will see you join a small group of like-minded writers over a set period, led by a skilled tutor, during which you’ll work on your craft and confidence.
Relaxed and engaging, the classes are carefully structured to take you through a series of tutor presentations, practical exercises and group discussion as well as developing new or existing work.
We offer beginner, intermediate and advanced levels of learning throughout the year. Some of our live evening courses take place in person at Dragon Hall in Norwich, while others take place online. Our online classes still take place in real-time online so you can enjoy the feeling of being in a classroom with fellow participants and your tutor from the comfort of your own home – anywhere in the world!
You will have the opportunity to receive feedback on your work – either informally in class, and/or through one workshop session. To ensure that everyone gets a chance to input, we have capped courses to a maximum of 15 people.
There are no upcoming evening courses currently.
