Life Writing Courses

September 7, 2011

This week sees the start of enrolment for the Life Writing Courses that I am teaching for the W.E.A. in Darlington and N.Y.C.C. Adult and Community Learning in Richmond. The beginners’ course is designed to give a taste of the different genres which come under the umbrella term of Life Writing.  Topics covered include; diaries, journals, blogs, timelines, biography and autobiography, fiction or non-fiction, memoirs, letters, spiritual accounts and travel writing.  By the end of the ten weeks, participants should have an idea for a personal project.  It is anticipated that further courses will guide them through creative writing skills and techniques to facilitate completion of such projects to the level required for publication.

To find out more about the Darlington courses, contact Kate on 07530 219 803 or email: in Richmond can be booked online at To talk to someone by telephone, contact Richmondshire area office on 0845 873 6585 or email: those of you who prefer residential courses, there is a new venue in Whitley Bay.  A course brochure is available from The first weekend, Fiction Foundations is on Sept 30th- Oct 2nd 2011 with tutors Carol Clewlow and Kitty Fitzgerald.

  1. Good luck with the classes – this sounds like a great programme Judith. One I would definitely have signed up for when I was starting writing – quite fancy it now !

    • Thanks, Avril. When I designed the course I kept in mind what I would have liked to know when I first started writing. Have spent a lot of time planning and preparing the sessions. Looking forward to teaching it.
