Welcome to Thrive, our level-three creative writing coursein London!
Thrive is a five-week course that will build your confidence and hone the skills you developed in our first two Write Like a Grrrl courses. Those who haven’t attended any WLAG courses are very welcome too!
This course really focuses on self-compassion and developing your confidence as an artist while shrinking the inner critic.
As well as this we’ll explore how to write happiness; create mood and tension; writing the uncanny, writing comedy and much more.
We’ll examine writers such as Claire Keegan, Ramona Ausubel, Dorothy Allison and many others and each session will feature topic-relevant generative writing exercises to help get more words on the page every week!
The course will be relaxed and full of the usual WLAG magic with plenty of opportunities to see where you’re at in your creative practice and determine what’s holding you back.
If you need cheering on, cheering up, want to get back into the writing habit or keep smashing out those words, then this is the course for you! We can’t wait to see you!
