What is the place of fiction in a world dominated by new technology? What is the fiction of the future, and who will write it?

The world-renowned Warwick Writing Programme (ranked 1st in the UK for creative writing teaching) is pleased to offer this practical and creative course. The course is designed for new and developing writers of fiction looking to take their work to the next level.

First, you’ll go through a refresher of the building blocks of fiction - character, narrative, style, and structure. Then, you will move on to explore both traditional (flash fictions, short stories, the novel) and experimental forms (hyperfiction, podcast, interactive and gaming narratives). Finally, it will be up to you decide what kind of fiction you think is best suited to the world we live in today, and what the best opportunities for new writers might be.

This course will give students a greater mastery of their creative process and an enhanced understanding of the world of contemporary fiction.
