In an exciting 4 week journey with David Brown, you will get to explore experimenting with a variety of styles & ideas with a view of stimulating new content.

Through various activities & exploration exercises we will begin building up your writing skills as well as developing ways to use language creatively to capture your audience’s attention. Delving into lyrics, short stories, plays and poetry, the course will culminate in the opportunity to share your own practice and receive constructive feedback given from peers that you can act on.

The course has demonstrated a very positive impact on mental health & wellbeing. It has also helped to foster community and crucially improve participants confidence in their own writing.
