Expand your creative writing skills!

This program is designed as a follow-up to ‘Creative Writing’ and was developed in response to demand from those who had successfully completed that program and wanted to learn more. It offers participants the opportunity to further expand their knowledge and skills about the creative writing process like Richard uses.

Topics include innovative ways to create atmosphere and excitement in your writing, how to choose and use different tenses, how to write effective dialogue, how to use emotive language, how to create memorable characters and atmospheric settings, how to make objects come to life in words, how to maintain control and form in a long work, and how to develop a personal writing style.

Testimonials:

“The course and Richard were above and beyond all expectations” - Kathy

“Enjoyed the comradery between participants” - Karen

“Really useful course, especially how the publishing process works” - Joanna

How to enrol

Danielle De Vito-Mills

Complement your work experience with relevant marketing principles

Working full-time, I needed a flexible course that could fit into my busy schedule. I enrolled part-time into TAFE Queensland Gold Coast's Diploma of Marketing which proved to be the perfect balance for my restrictive lifestyle. I gained confidence in knowing that the valuable skills I have learnt in class can now be put into practice within my workplace.

Outcome

The skills learned in both ‘Creative Writing’ and ‘Creative Writing – Advanced’ would be of value to anyone aspiring to a career as an author, a journalist or an advertising copy writer.

Participants will exit this program with a piece of creative writing (most often a short story) well under way and with the motivation to complete it and seek its publication using the knowledge and skills acquired in both programs.
