Offside Books are proud to announce we are hosting a creative writing course, with Hud Saunders, at our bookshop on 92 Willesden Lane, Kilburn, NW6 7TA from the 7th of February 2017 to 4th April 2017.
About Hud Saunders:
In 2003 Hud Saunders graduated from editing film scripts to writing screenplays – his first film, ‘Brothers in Arms’, written for Moulin Rouge producer Martin Brown, was followed by several screenplays, alongside the role of creative consultant on both of 1 Giant Leap’s Grammy nominated movie documentaries. His first novel ‘The Beasts of Belmont Park’ was published by The Pigeonhole in 2015. He is currently writing the sequel.
Hud has been teaching creative writing since 2010. He taught the highly successful ‘Writer’s Garret’ course at Lauderdale House from 2013-2015 and has run workshops and writing courses for groups and advertising agencies.
About the course:
Have you ever wondered about writing but felt unsure of how to start? Do you write on your own but need some feedback? Are you an experienced writer looking for ways to develop your skills? This fun and inspiring course will provide stimulating and thought-provoking exercises and prompts to get you started, along with lots of constructive advice. Ideal for both beginners and experienced writers.
Participants only need to bring a pen and something to write on.
The course will run from the 7th of February 2017 to 4th April 2017 (with a one week break in the middle), on subsequent Tuesday nights from 7pm-9pm.
Please note places are limited to a maximum of ten participants, so please book early to secure a place.
“I really enjoyed it – it was great to get feedback and Hud did a great job of facilitating a relaxed atmosphere. It gave me the confidence to write a few other bits and pieces and submit a poem to a friend’s ‘zine’”- Heather Griffiths
“I learned that starting to write isn’t as difficult if you let your mind free and write whatever. If you start with setting yourself limits and boundaries you won’t get anywhere.”- Peter Konickx
“It was great to just let go and write for a change. Being a copywriter I’m so used to having rules to stick to, or tone of voices, but with this course I could kind of just write whatever came into my head. I thought Hud was great, really enthusiastic and could find positive things in what everyone had written.”- Amy Westbrook, Creative, YKCR/Y&R
“I was inspired to write more, Hud was very good and very encouraging.”- Anna-Marie Holub
