Clinic Workshop: The Basics of Creative Non-Fiction

This workshop, which can be taken independently or as an introduction to the Online Creative Non-Fiction Clinic, will introduce different types of creative non-fiction and ways to approach them. The workshop will involve discussion and exercises that provide a foundation for developing your own approach to creative non-fiction and starting to write.

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: Saturday 11 February, 10am–4pm
  • Where: Online
  • With: Sam van Zweden
