This self-study course is for complete beginners and is an expanded version of our textbook, Creative Writing for Creative People: Beginners. It includes additional exercises, examples and tutor comments to help you through the course. There is an end of course task that will get you working towards a goal for the remainder of the course, putting into practice what you have learned so far.

The course is designed to aid complete beginners to Creative Writing, or to provide a quick refresher or sampler for those who are not quite ready to start one of our tutored courses. Course materials are sent as a PDF document, or you can study online, depending on your preference.
