The aim is to get you excited about creative writing and give you the tools to start a habit that will feed your imagination for years to come. Using games and exercises, we’ll kickstart stories and breathe life into characters. We’ll look at plot and place, character, dialogue and humour, with no phones or laptops, just the soothing sound of ink on paper.

The emphasis will be on developing spontaneity and confidence in your writing. Learn where to find inspiration and how to keep your ideas coming. You don’t need ambitions of novel writing to enjoy this; it’s about writing as a way to wellbeing, a private space where you can explore and create. Beginners and regular writers are equally welcome.

"An incredibly enjoyable and useful course. Stimulating, inspirational and fun. Worth doing again and again. Great teacher.” Emma Silvester

"I had an absolutely fab time last week at CR. Working with Kinny was a complete joy, but what happens there couldn't be nearly as good if CR itself wasn't such a glorious, beautiful, very special and well-run place that feels like home to me."
