My writing journey
Jane Bailey reflects on six months studying creative writing online

Toying with the idea of taking up a creative writing course in the New Year? Jane Bailey signed up to one of our Felixstowe Book Festival annual competition. I have recently sent off two more stories to national competitions, and I’m back working on the novel and having fun with it too!

Creative Writing Online is a partnership between Writers’ Centre Norwich and the University of East Anglia. You’ll be tutored by professional writers and benefit from UEA’s world-renowned expertise and knowledge. 

The deadline for Spring 2017 applications is 19 December 2016.
