Covid Update

On Tuesday 29 March, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Sajid Javid, set out the next steps for living with COVID-19 in England from Friday 1 April.

Updated guidance advises:

  • Adults with the symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and no longer have a high temperature.
  • Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to college when they no longer have a high temperature, and are well enough to attend.
  • Adults with a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice is 3 days.

For education and childcare settings from Friday 1 April:

  • Regular asymptomatic testing is no longer recommended in any education or childcare setting, including in SEND, alternative provision and children’s social care settings. Therefore, we will no longer be able to order test kits .

Summary

Whether you are writing to get published or just for fun, this ten-week course takes an innovative approach to writing poetry and fiction by making the familiar strange and educating the imagination through a play with words. We explore the boundaries of writing to construct unique pieces of work that focus on contemporary poetry and the short story form. Weekly sessions aim to develop confidence in writing and reading your work aloud, as well as providing the necessary feedback to your peers in a supportive and constructive way.

How will I learn?

This course is run through a series of live workshops and feedback sessions, where you will work both individually and as a group and you will have the opportunity to share your work in class. Weekly sessions will be supported by reading material that draws from a diverse community of writers.

Whether you already have some experience of writing or are just embarking on your writing journey, all we ask is that you have an open mind and a willingness to draw on new ideas to develop your writing. Although some previous experience in writing prose and poetry is an advantage, along with a willingness to learn by exploring new ideas and the ability to communicate your work effectively.
