Creative Writing Classes

Time to get creative!

We're delighted to announce that LU Arts is running a new Creative Writing evening class this academic year! Like our other creative learning classes (Painting & Drawing and Pottery), it's open to students, staff and the general public. The class will run every Wednesday evening (7-9pm) in 10 week blocks during the autumn and spring terms. The first block will start on Wednesday 10th October 2018.

It's a broad class suitable for beginners up to those with more experience in writing creatively. Learn how to open your work with a bang, develop your characters, utilize the senses and use dialogue to develop character...and lots more! The class will have a particular focus on fiction and poetry but is intended for people interested in honing their creative writing skills in any form, and our experienced tutor will be able to adjust the course content to cover your particular needs.


Every Wednesday, 7-9pm, from 10th October to 12th December 2018


Room MHL 0.07, Martin Hall Building

The tutor - Marianne Cronin

Marianne is a practicing creative writer and has been published in Mslexia magazine and the Birmingham Journal of Literature. She loves exploring the way that language can be used creatively to have an effect on the reader. Her research on the use of dialogue in fiction has been presented at academic conferences in the UK and Europe. She recently completed her PhD in stylistics at the University of Birmingham and holds an MA in Literary Linguistics from the same institution. Marianne loves to work with writers to help them shape their work and is very excited to explore new themes and activities in the creative writing evening class.
