Landscapes have always inspired writers, from local to exotic to imaginary places.
During this 11-week course you will explore this theme through poems and prose, and use a range of artworks as prompts for writing. You will also focus on wider dimensions of the theme, such as migration, displacement, and belonging.
You will experiment with a variety of literary forms, including stories, different poetic forms and memoirs.
By the end of the course, you will have drafted some pieces of writing on the theme, received supportive feedback, and enjoyed participating in a creative community.
Writers of all levels of experience are welcome.
