Creative Writing AS Level at Guildford College

Course description

If you’re interested in journalism or writing as a career this is a good course to study, complimenting English Language or Literature or English Literature.

It is equally useful if you want to develop your ability to express yourself in writing for a range of audiences - a skill that can be applied to the professional world of work and university and the wide variety of writing tasks completed within it.
