Are you ready for the next level? This is the self-study version of our online intermediate course (£70) – you access the same materials as our tutored students, but follow the ‘self-study’ options in our instructions, enabling you to more successfully critique your own writing and progress your knowledge and practice of craft
You will have done some writing before or completed either our 10 week course for complete beginners, or 4 week tutored course, and are now wanting to hone your work.
In this Intermediate course, we look at how to develop your writing, using tone as plot and how to insert conflict in dialogue. You will also gain skills in how to increase your our own self awareness as a writer, which is crucial for your continued development. We will also think about the importance of motif and subtext in your work, looking at other writers to help us include these elements in our own writing.
Finally, we will consider how to target a market for publication and how to prepare your work for submission.
What our students say:
‘My creative writing skills have greatly improved after the course, and I would definitely recommend to anyone interested!’
Summeya, student (Beginners face to face and online)
‘I attended a four-week advanced short story course with Sarah Dobbs and I learnt many techniques for editing and finishing stories. CW the Artists Way have also helped with my novel both structurally and in line-by-line suggestions. There is nothing better than the expert advice of a practitioner who has developed skills in editing and teaching by writing.’
John, Writer (Advanced face to face and manuscript appraisal)

Shazia, student (Beginners face to face – intermediate online)
