Start your writing journey by joining one of our creative writing courses.

Imagination, innovation and creativity are the three main ingredients when it comes to creative writing.

Creative fiction and poetry are expressive forms of literature that can tell a story, portray a message or particular emotion. Each writer develops their own style in expressing their thoughts and ideas on paper.

Some writers turn to the form of nature writing, where they are inspired by the natural world. Nature can be an enormous influence on creativity and can help you develop a whole new creative language.

Take inspiration from the skies above, through to the ground beneath your feet.

It’s a great way to take nature watching and observation to new heights. Each journey is individual and writers can develop their own creative style.
