This course will introduce you to the techniques, skills and craft of creative writing. You will be encouraged to experiment with different literary forms of writing including, but not restricted to, fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and drama.

It is suitable for beginners who might be trying to write creatively for the first time and for more experienced writers who are keen to develop new techniques and improve their writing skills further.

This online learning course enables you to study from home and participate in an online community of other students learning about creative writing techniques. The module is delivered through Blackboard, our online learning environment.

Exploring Creative Writing Techniques can be studied as a stand-alone course, but it is also one of three core modules for the Certificate of Higher Education in Creative Writing at Aberystwyth University.

1. Written piece (creative non-fiction or short story; 1200 words) or a collection of poetry (60 lines) (60%)
2. Critical reflective commentary (40%)
