WELCOME TO THE UNTHANK
SCHOOL OF WRITING
Maybe you’ve always had a desire to write but never knew where to start. Maybe you haven’t written since school, or you’re going back to that novel you hid in a drawer and tried to forget about. Perhaps you see the world as a series of stories or scenes from a film but have never had the confidence to write. Or maybe you’ve been writing on your own for a while and could use some helpful advice and honest feedback.
Whatever your history, the Unthank School has a creative writing group that can help you explore your creative potential in a friendly and supportive environment.
WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY
Introduction to Writing Short Stories is an exceptional course which has seen me writing seriously again. Regular deadlines, top-quality teaching and peer critique provided a doorway back into the discipline of writing fiction with passion and a sense of taking risks. Tutor feedback was outstanding: incisive and well-considered, it opened up my story’s potential, and really pushed the writing on.
Now into my third term of evening classes with the Unthank School and the experience remains the highlight of my week. I am pleased and gratified by the dedication to the course, the increasing quality of the writing and the level of constructive criticism drawn from the group under Ashley’s empowering coordination.
