The course will help you to understand the mindset of professional writers, to enable you to test out your skills in new and interesting areas of creativity; and it will help you to escalate your own expertise with the written word taking your writing to the next level.
If you follow this course throughout and participate in all of the writing projects, you will find that your learning curve rises rapidly.
What Will You Learn?
There are so many opportunities for writers in this digital age and the world of publishing has evolved greatly over the last few years. Publishing is now accessible to all who have a good grasp of the English language and because the world is now a predominantly much smaller place through the rise of the digital era, it is possible to become published in many English speaking countries.
This course however does not just concentrate on publishing but on the skills required that will elevate your writing abilities to the dizzy heights of professionalism. There is pleasure in the written word, creating imaginary plots and forming descriptive scenes filled with vibrancy and colour will satisfy the need to create. The knowledge of how to craft a captivating short story and to possess the ability to craft larger than life characters will stimulate those creative juices.
If you choose the road towards publication, understand that it can be a long but enjoyable route towards success, while you absorb the craft and incorporate it into your own writing studies. Think of this learning curve as an apprenticeship as you polish and hone the skills that will provide an outlet for your creative thoughts and that could provide you with the skills to become a published writer.
While the emphasis is on enjoyment, the projects within will test your imagination and stretch your writing skills, so that you learn steadily and consistently throughout.
