Every art form, from cooking to painting to furniture making, has basic skills that the beginner has to master before he or she can move on to creating competent and original work.

The East Cleveland Arts Creative Writing Course will teach the basic skills of creative writing: dialogue, action and description. Learn how to balance these elements in your writing, how to introduce mood and tension, and how to write scenes that read like your favourite author.

Delivered by professional and established authors from around North Yorkshire.

After the 10 week course, the creative writers will meet every 2 weeks to read their work about a theme or topic.

These classes start in February 2019, subscribe to our newsletter to be kept up to date.
