Summing up

Key points from the course
We’ve come to the end of our course, but it’s just the beginning for the ways you might be teaching Creative Writing, and the places it will take you.

Take a look at this final article, which suggests ways you might take your learning forward. Always remember the key lessons from each of the three weeks: it can be taught, you only need a blank piece of paper (sometimes not even that), it can be done with any group, any where, and the key to a strong session is often being open to the brilliance and creativity of those who are participating!

On that note, do spend some time looking through all the comments and discussion ideas of your fellow participants, as all of your collective knowledge will help to keep moving your practise and your thinking forward. Teaching Creative Writing isn’t a solo pursuit, its a shared endeavour, and one you’re now all part of together.
