Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)

Do you have a passion for travel and words?  This course will introduce you to the skills and concepts needed to turn your experiences into Brysonesque prose, and help you on your way to writing a travel book.  Expect all manner of insights into how successful travel writers do it, with an emphasis on practical writing exercises and close discussion and assessment of your own work.

Given the nature of creative writing, it is important that students' use of English is sufficiently fluent to be able to understand in English nuances of meaning and have a familiarity with the structure and grammar of English.
