FREE creative writing mini-course
We’re thrilled to offer a free mini-course from beloved CBC tutor and acclaimed author Simon Wroe to inspire you and get you writing across the next few weeks.
Make sure you’re subscribed to our mailing list below and this FREE three-week creative writing course will be delivered straight to your inbox throughout November as part of our weekly newsletter.
Simon has inspired and supported students on our London courses for five year – he is also one of the tutors on our upcoming six-month online Writing Your Novel course. During the mini-course he will offer his personal take on three different storytelling topics: Character, Openings, and Scenes. Each week you’ll get a lesson from Simon – and a writing exercise to help you put his lessons into practice.
There will be an option to pay for feedback on your tasks. For £35 per task, you can get a short piece of personal written feedback (around 100–200 words) from a member of our experienced CBC editorial team.
There’s no obligation to pay for this optional feedback and you don’t need to decide whether you want to opt-in for the feedback straight away; you can have a go at the task and choose to pay and upgrade at any time if you’d like to receive editorial comments on your work.
All of our current newsletter subscribers will automatically receive this FREE mini-course. If you are not subscribed but would like to join in, just sign up below.
