Online Feedback Clinic: Creative Non-Fiction

Join Sam van Zweden for this online feedback clinic on Creative Non-fiction.

In this online course, students will develop their non-fiction prose under the mentorship and supervision of Sam van Zweden. Students will submit short pieces or excerpts and receive feedback from the tutor, developing their 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. 

Our Online Feedback Clinics are asynchronous, with no face-to-face meetings, allowing you to engage with the content at the times of day and week that suit your schedule. They are hosted on our private WordPress server. There will be an optional Zoom introduction to the clinic website for those less confident with technology, which will be recorded for those who cannot attend live.
