Using in-class exercises, and take-home assignments this course focuses

on the nuts and bolts of creating narrative fiction, such as point of view, characterisation, structure, theme and creating scenes through dialogue.

You will look at ways to build writing into your lifestyle, and the process of editing and rewriting. You will also have fun with words, and create a deconstruction/collage piece. There is an opportunity to workshop, enabling you to feel comfortable sharing your work, as well as benefiting from valuable feedback.

You will work towards a final piece of 1-2,000 words, to read at the final class during a night of readings. Students who wish to continue with their creative writing in a supportive environment, may choose to graduate to the Literary Kitchen Writers Workout.

?This tightly structured and thoroughly entertaining course was a revelation, encouraging experimentation, with timed exercises and playful collaboration with the other students. I am hooked and am not only beginning a writing habit, but I have enrolled in the next course!? Tessa Brown, Dec 2014

    • Similar experience here with Niko. First of al, the voicemail message that says he is busy but will respond, is reassuring. He followed up as promised and detected the leak by visual methods. He also provided detailed information about the origin of the leak, how to approach insurance claim, etc. The pricing structure and the invoice was clear too. Highly recommend Niko.
    • Ok, for clarity, this meeting is being organised by GALA and will be hosted by their PR team. It is likely there won't be any councillors or council officials in attendance. If you've been to the previous format meetings you will know that they will listen to your complaints / praise / suggestions, nod their heads, make the right sounds, make promises and assurances that they'll do better next year, then just do the same as last year. I'm being realistic, not negative - why would it be any different from previous years? Except rather than facing ten or twenty engaged, experienced locals it will be three or four of them against individuals - much easier to manage! As for location, I presume these meetings are supposed to be for the very local people who are most affected by it, there's any number of closer venues (that they've used before) so why make it a long walk / short bus trip for us?  And the middle of August? No one's on holiday then, are they? If anyone didn't get the email and wants to go, write to [email protected] I'm sure they'll be happy to accommodate you...   Oh also, the works going on now have got nothing to do with GALA or attempting to make the ground drier. It is to create flood containment areas to cater for a "once in a 100 years" storm event. So once they're complete, unless this dreaded storm occurs, it will look much the same as before but with some small "bunds" (metre high earth barriers) on the NW perimeters of park & rye...
    • There are pluses and minus's here. The major minus is that any general disquiet is somewhat diminished by there being no 'open' session - and no one to keep tabs on what is being said to individuals or groups. In a Southwark session on CPZs for instance my partner was told that the probable time for being active would be weekdays from 12.00 to 2.00 - which wasn't even on offer when the questionnaire was finally published. This isn't by the way a CPZ issue, so don't rise to it, but an example about the way this sort of consultation in general can be manipulated. On the plus side it can involve more people - which is clearly a good thing.
    • First time i came to East Dulwich was to have sunday lunch at La Careme with my parents around 1980. It was where Sema Thai was I think. I was in hall of residence round back of fox on the hill and i think they wanted to go there because east dulwich seemed 'posher' than Camberwell even back then before it was gentrified.
