Creative Writing Diploma overview

Writing is easy. All you have to do is cross out the wrong words.

Mark Twain, the author of several 19th Century novels including "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn", notes with irony the complex process and nature of writing. This Diploma in Creative Writing can be the basis you need to write not only fiction but factual pieces of work too. 

There are all kinds of barriers that stop us filling the blank screen or paper with words - confidence being one of them!

This broad based diploma helps you to understand the writing process and the skills that you, as an aspiring writer, will need.

The 14 modules which you can study online or as a paper copy of the course cover all kinds of aspects and genres, providing a firm foundation for your writing, whether you choose to make a career out of writing or continue to write for your own pleasure. 

This diploma will;

  • Explore different texts and genres - helping you to discover a passion or develop one for a certain genre
  • Help you begin the writing process -  the hardest step for a writer can be knowing where and how to start
  • Examine writing for different settings – from radio plays to writing for children, there are modules that cover the different styles of writing and how to adapt your own style to suit
  • Non-fiction writing – writing for the web is a common aspect that many writers now find themselves employed on a freelance basis to do for a wide variety of clients
  • Build your confidence in all kinds of writing, including script writing – writing for TV or the stage requires different writing skills but if you have a great idea for a stage or screen play, this module will be of interest

This creative writing distance learning diploma also looks at being published, approaching agents and offers valuable advice for when you are looking to publish your work.

What follows creative writing courses and distance learning?

Many students go on to become published or carve out a career as a writer for online publications and websites.

It may be that you write as a hobby and use this course to enhance your current skill set. Like other students, you may decide to continue with your studies, taking other online courses such as fiction writing or more specialist courses, such as exploring linguistics.
