This is a new and innovative creative writing short course that culminates in the production of a spoken word album bringing your work to life. Under the guidance of novelist and writing tutor, Eve Makis, you’ll produce creative pieces using a range of fun and interactive prompts. Drawing on your imagination and life experiences. Work will be edited in the sessions, recorded by a professional music producer and used to create a spoken word album with an ambient soundscape. For participants to take away in week 6. Suitable for beginners and more experienced writers.
