Course Content

Ever felt you had a novel in you, or is there a short story or poem you need to write?

During this five-week course, we will explore:

  • How to start creating your piece of writing
  • Techniques to make your writing come alive
  • The direction of where the piece could go and how to get there
  • Developing your very own creative writing style and voice

Assessment Method

This course uses RARPA as its method of assessment. There is no exam.

 RARPA stands for Recognising and Recording Progress and Achievement which is the process of assessment for non-accredited learning. It is a means of validating the outcomes of programmes which do not result in qualifications. RARPA is a five-stage process which measures and records learners’ progress, achievements and attendance.
