In this online course, develop your non-fiction prose under the mentorship and supervision of Sam van Zweden. You’ll have an opportunity to concentrate on developing your own non-fiction with expert advice before submitting short pieces or excerpts and receiving feedback, developing your work and identifying opportunities and areas for improvement. This online course actively encourages sharing of your work with your cohort as well as with the tutor.
For the full experience, you can sign up for a workshop to get started and meet your tutor before you submit work for feedback from the tutor and your peers across a three-month period via our online forum. If you’d prefer to just dip a toe into the clinics, you can sign up for a one-day workshop; if you’re more confident in your drafting skills, you can opt, instead, to focus solely on the feedback rounds. This page is for those who wish to sign up for the workshop only.
- When: Submissions of up to 1000 words due Thursdays 11 April, 16 May, 13 June.
- Where: Online
- With: Sam van Zweden
