Creative Writing courses
We have a range of courses for you to choose from, whether you are looking to develop your creative writing skills, write your novel or use writing to improve your wellbeing and give you a new sense of direction in life.
Emma is a skilled facilitator in creative writing and writing for personal development. She has written for numerous national publications, published seven non-fiction books and one novel. There are, of course, plenty of writers out there offering to teach you, but it is important that whoever you choose can actually teach! As a Senior Lecturer for over 18 years, Emma has coached numerous students to success and is passionate about nurturing new writers. Her other projects include: designing an MA in Creative Writing & Publishing for Bournemouth University (on which she also teaches); launching and directing the international Fresher Writing Prize for unpublished writers; facilitating workshops in personal and professional development for GPs.

Emma offers evening courses in Creative Writing in Mudeford, near Christchurch for writers of all levels on a Tuesday evening (7-9pm). Groups are kept small (never more than 8 people) so that teaching is personal and you are able to get the most out of the experience.
