Course description

Successful writing can be the catalyst for every possible human emotion and, consequently, creative writing is steeped in everyday life. The study of Creative writing is the study of our language; the power of the individual word and the potency that the pen (or the keyboard!) can give us. After all, the pen is mightier than the sword!
