Online Creative Writing Course - Beginners

Online Creative Writing Course - Beginners

City Academy’s online Online Creative Writing Course - Beginners is perfect for beginners who have longed to put pen to paper.

These classes are structured around regular writing prompts designed to encourage, inspire and stimulate critical thinking. You should also expect to do writing exercises between each class - the more you practice, the more you'll improve.

The skills acquired in these lessons are not just only for aspiring authors. Research shows that the ability to create and craft ideas effectively and creatively helps improve confidence, personal growth, everyday communication skills and professional prospects. 

Throughout this interactive online course you will be encouraged to share your work in class and learn from one another. As with all of our online writing courses, you will also receive friendly feedback from your expert tutor.

As this course does not cover grammar or vocabulary students must have a good level of spoken and written English, 

In this virtual course you will

  • Learn short exercises to ignite the imagination
  • Share your work and progress in a constructive group setting
  • Work on weekly assignments
  • Analyse the key components of classical dramatic narrative
  • Respond to new creative writing via group discussion
  • Produce a full story with plot, structure, creating characters and narrative

You will need

  • A device with a camera and microphone
  • A desk, table or flat surface on which to write
  • Some paper or a notebook
  • A pen or pencil

Please note that fluency in English is essential for this course. If you have any special requirements please inform our Customer Services Team prior to your course start date so we can ensure we cater for these needs. You can call us on 0207 042 8833 or email info@city-academy.com.

A note on participation. Enhancing these skills requires practical and active participation. As this is an interactive, group class all students will be required to have their videos turned on.

All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.
