New Writing Courses

I am now collecting registrations for people interested in joining 3 new courses. Please note that the Creative Writing Course (the 1st one listed) will be held on Mondays at 12noon and start in early May, so please register for this one as soon as possible:

Creative Writing Course

The 10 week Creative Writing course will look at various techniques and exercises to open up & improve writing writing skills, work with metaphor and imagery, create texts and narratives to given themes and word counts as well as free writing. The end goal will be to write a 1000 word short story. One session a week for 10 weeks. Maximum 10 people per class.

Monologue and Short Plays in Various Formats

We look at the format of writing monologue and plays for stage, screen and radio and how to capture a character's authentic voice, find the central message of the text and prepare it for presentation.

Live Presentation of Written Word

For bringing developed pieces of text to performance level; working on voice, rhythm, projection, stance and movement, character, direction, subsequent re-writes and edits from further developing the pieces.

Private Study

Working one to one with individuals on their personal goals and creative writing projects eg: novel, short story, poetry, plays.

If interested in any of the above courses please email me on: lindawildfire@hotmail.com


  1. This seems like a great idea. I am just wondering if the homogenity of the group in the creative writing course (level, goals, etc..) is going to be considered while accepting registrations

  2. Hi, thanks for your comment. There is no criteria other than a willingness to open up one's writing; the course is designed that people of varying writing experience can participate and each draw their individual benefits. Obviously there IS a starting point of being able to use English to a fairly advanced level and to be able to work with imagination but over the 10 years I have delivered Creative Writing courses I can truly say that the course does seem to accomodate individual approaches within a group framework.

  3. Thank you for the reply :) Where shall I send the registration request?
