Creative writing, in its broadest sense, covers not only prose writing, but poetry, scriptwriting, memoirs, short story writing, journaling and article writing.
The Advanced Creative Writing Training module is for individuals who are taking writing beyond the rudimentary level and are building a profession around their craft.
Participants of this eight-week course will be exposed to writing standards and styles. They will learn how to research, use source materials, and express their thoughts creatively through fine writing, and quote their references where applicable.
