An accredited Creative Writing module. 

Course Code

CLL 22/23_Acc_105
Course Description

Through Ekphrasis (which is loosely translated as ‘the dramatic description of a visual work of art’) this module uses artistic, historic, and domestic culture as a means of kick-starting the creative writing process. Participants will partake in a series of classroom-based sessions which will foster the written and spoken word as well as encourage interaction with material objects. They will also have the option to carry out independent visits to local galleries and museums for research and inspiration. Throughout the module, creative writing techniques will be taught against a rich literary background of published writers which students will read closely and seek to draw ideas, craft, and motivation from. Thus in thought and practice, the aim of this module is to explore how other art forms and the object world relate to writing itself.
