Courses are capped at 15 participants, allowing for a thorough creative critique of your work.
Courses are offered in Kingston and in Providence throughout the year.
The course focuses on A Sense of Place, and includes morning workshops on campus; on-site workshops at locations such as 13th century Carreg Cennan Castle, Aberglasney Gardens, and Big Pit Coal Mine; travels to Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty like the Gower Peninsula and the Pembrokeshire Coast; individual student tutorials; and evening readings by Wales’ finest authors, poets, and playwrights. Students may do the course for credit or just for fun. The school runs for 10 days every year in late May / early June, and is anchored at the beautiful campus of The University of Wales, Trinity St David, in the small town of Lampeter, in West Wales.
Creative writing students can further explore advanced, theme-driven seminars at the 400-level and beyond, and some undergraduate students may also be able to enroll at the graduate level.
Students are also encouraged to participate in workshops and master classes in URI’s Ocean State Writing Conference held each fall.
