We’re delighted to announce that Faber author and BBC National Short Story Award winner Clare Wigfall is returning to offer a 7-week Writing Workshop designed to get your creative juices flowing and help you to generate a body of new work. Under Clare’s gentle guidance, each structured workshop will provide prompts and exercises to make the writing process simple and allow you to develop your craft. You’ll be amazed at what you can produce. You’ll also be introduced to inspirational and thought-provoking writing by established authors and have a chance to hone your critical skills through group discussion of the texts. This course will work you hard and provide challenges, but it also promises lots of fun and laughter, as well as much stimulation and encouragement from the others in the group.

A graduate of the prestigious UEA Masters Programme, Clare has been teaching creative writing for nearly a decade and has taught workshops all over Europe, including for the Arvon Foundation and the BBC. Suitable for advanced writers to total beginners, this special workshop series guarantees to inspire. It also offers an unbeatable opportunity to work with an author described as “an assured literary conjuror” (The Guardian) and the author of tales “sorrowful, disturbing and darkly beautiful” (London Review of Books).

This course is not recommended for writers who took Clare’s May-July 2014 class. Something new will be offered for these students in the New Year!
