Course Description

Creative Writing: 30 Days of Fiction, is ideal for anyone wanting to increase their dedication to writing through daily writing tasks. You don't need to already be writing; beginners would benefit from the course as much as those who have been writing for a while and now find themselves in a creative rut.
Each day students will be presented with a writing activity to complete. Some of the activities take longer than other and, like all things, you get back as much as you put in, but setting aside half an hour or so to your daily writing practice. Some of the tasks link on and continue from each other, so it's important that you complete each day in order.
The course runs over 30 days, each day there is a video to watch and a creative task to complete, some days there are PDF's to accompany the tasks, but most of the writing should be done in your writer's journal / log or on your personal computer.
The tasks are complete in themselves but feel free to use your imagination to expand and connect them where you want to.
One of the objectives of the course is to get you thinking creatively and using your own dynamic initiative to write engaging and entertaining fiction.

Instructor Biography

Annaliese Avery, Creative Writing Tutor

I have been writing fiction for eleven years, since finishing my BA (Hons) Degree in English Literature and Language, and I have been teaching creative writing in Schools and independent groups for the past six years.

Many of my creative writing students have gone on to be shortlisted and won competitions as well as seeing their work in print.

I am passionate about writing and the creative process, I enjoy inspiring others to write, and I am proud to be part of the writing journey of the people that I instruct. I have worked with both adult and children, helping them to explore the many exciting elements of fiction writing and empowering them to become creative.

Storytelling is one of the most enduring and rewarding pastimes; I consider it an honour and a treat to share my stories with many, many young readers.

I am best known for my #1 bestselling* humorous Children's book Ninja Nan and Sidekick Grandad, which was shortlisted and a finalist in The Peoples Book Prize 2014
