A published author from Wiltshire will be sharing her skills and knowledge through an exciting new creative writing course which starts at the Chippenham campus next month.
Alison Knight is looking forward to teaching those who would like to start a new chapter, saying: “I’ve met so many wonderful teachers who have helped me on my journey to publication, who have made creative writing fun and challenging and sometimes even life-changing.
“I am now looking forward to sharing my love of writing and encouraging and inspiring people on their own writing journey.”
‘Who? What? Where? When? ‘An introduction to Creative Writing’ is a four week course where learners will explore characters, genre, and writing in past, present and future tense.
Alison, who writes contemporary women’s fiction and young adult adventures, has always had a love of reading and writing, but didn’t start writing herself until her mid-20s.
After writing her first book, the mum of two decided to learn more about the craft of writing and went to university to study a Creative Writing degree, for which she received first class honours from Bath Spa University.
She also gained a Masters in the same subject from Oxford Brookes University and has been delighted to see her hard work paying off.
She already has two novels published after signing contracts with a publisher in 2014 and is looking forward to launching her latest tale Rosie Goes to War at the London Book Fair in 2016.
The course, which is suitable for anyone with an interest in creative writing and aims to inspire, motivate and inform, starts on Tuesday, 10th November, and takes place from 7-9pm.
