The course will focus first on the role of voice in fiction and poetry, secondly on the equally fundamental role that a sense of place plays in the creation of compelling literary works. Taught by experienced, award-winning writers of poetry and prose, it offers students the opportunity to develop their confidence and literary skills in a supportive, constructive workshop environment. At the same time it will greatly enhance students' understanding and appreciation of how literary works in general produce their remarkable effects, and how they are constructed.
