What Do Our Creative Writing Courses Cover?
This course is directed towards helping people come out of their shells. We want to open your eyes into the world of possibilities that creative writing offers. In one session you can expect to be sitting in a classroom writing about your favourite childhood memory, and in the next you may be sitting in a garden writing a short story about time travel.
If you're interested in writing but need a little push, or if you're in a writing profession but need more of a creative flair, this course is definitely for you!
Explore writing short fiction as well as different types of flash fiction - like twitterature, dribbles, drabbles and minisagas!
Take a dip in the novella pool too! These are longer than short stories, but shorter than novels.
Explore the art of writing haiku poetry, free-verse poetry, blackout poetry and more!
Write personal accounts of events, people or time periods in your life through narrative or descriptive writing.
This course has an introductory script writing program too! Get an idea of waht goes into writing different types of scripts.
The Writing Process
Here are the different steps of the writing process that we'll build your skills in during this creative writing course:
The Quest for Inspiration
What is a creative writer without inspiration? Sometimes it can be very difficult to find inspiration around you. We'll help you find something to write about everywhere you look.
Read, Read & Repeat!
Reading is what keeps a writer's soul alive. If you must write, you must read. We've curated a great reading list for this course that will get you hooked for sure!
Collect Your Thoughts
Before you sit down to write, it's important to make a rough plan for your piece or just put together all your ideas in one place just so you don't miss out on anything.
Setting the Words Free!
You're inspired and well-read. Now what? It's time to actually write, write, write, write, write, write, write, write, write, write, write, write, write, write, write, write and write some more!
The Journey to the Final Draft
One does not simply reach a final draft. It takes a great deal of editing, proofreading and patience to get there! Don't worry, we'll help you develop your skills in all of the above.
The Battle Against Writer's Block
Ah - Writer's Block! That's definitely a tough fight to win, but it isn't impossible. We'll help you with different ways to win this dreaded battle!
A Writer's Toolkit
Just sit back, relax and write. Don't worry about all the little details. Let the tools help you with that - Fill your kit up with useful tools that will make the writing process a lot smoother.
Share Your Writing with The World
Now that your work of art is ready, do you want to share it with the world? We'll show you how to set up and run a blog with minimum technical knowledge!

"This course made me fall in love with writing all over again"
I used to love to write when I was in school, but lost the habit over the years. I came across this course, and just had to join it. Now my writing is better than ever. I've even started my own blog to showcase my poetry, short stories and more. Kudos to Online Idea Lab for creating a great creative writing program!
