COURTTIA NEWLAND’S WRITER’S GROUP ‘THE COLLECTIVE’
Courttia Newland, author of the novels The Scholar and Snakeskin, is
starting a series of writing classes specifically aimed at Black
writers called The Collective. These classes aim to provide creative
writing exercises, group tutorials and the reading and dissemination
of published work, in order to help hone your writing craft and
provide the support needed to finish that all important novel, short
story collection, script or play. Writers of all backgrounds and all
levels are more than welcome, however the focus of these classes will
be connecting Black British writers with a wider creative aesthetic,
as well as writing from the African diaspora. Any genre is acceptable,
though the classes are primarily focused on dramatic prose.
Classes will take place on the the third Saturday of every month and
will begin from the 15th May through to the 17th July. This is a fee
paying workshop and so fees for all three workshops must be paid at
the first class. Payments accepted in cash only.
