How to Choose a Creative Writing Course

December 19th, 2012

Now that you’ve decided you want to take a creative writing course, how do you choose the best one for you? Well, that’s easy. You just need to answer these 10 questions and you’ll have a good idea of what kind of course you need:

Q1.      Do you want to study at home, in a classroom setting or on a  residential course ?

Q2.      Do you want to study in the day time or evening classes?

Q3.      What areas of writing do you want to cover in the course – fiction, non-fiction, children’s, poetry etc

Q4.      What level of study do you need? Are you a complete beginner or do you want something a little higher?

Q5.      What level of experience do you want your tutor to have?

Q6.      Do you want a certificate at the end of your course? But do bear in mind that most publishers are not interested in certificates – all they want to know is how well you can write.

Q7.      Do you need a course with strict time limits or would you prefer one that allows you to submit your work in your own time?

Q8.      Is regulation or accreditation of the college important to you?

Q9.      Do you want to apply for a course that is eligible for funding?

Q10.    How much are your prepared or able to pay for the course?

Once you’ve answered these questions, you can start to search for courses that meet your criteria.
