Course Content - What will I learn?
Building on the basics: through written exercises and discussion of learners work we will reinforce and extend our knowledge of the ‘rules of writing’. Making non-fiction creative: Non-fiction is usually easier to sell. But many writers feel that it is not ‘creative’. We will see how this objection can be removed, by applying the ‘rules’ of fiction factual writing.
