Writers who look beyond the text on paper
Creative Writing in Arnhem is a higher vocational course for those who want to become writers. It is the first such course on which you get to develop into a fully-fledged writer and creator, with the help of renowned writers, poets and professionals from the literary world. The emphasis on the course is on written text, but you can also choose to concentrate on other forms of presentation, such as zines, audio or performance. There is also a strong focus on creative research, so that you can identify where your talents, ambitions and opportunities lie.
At the start of the course you become acquainted with many different forms of stories, and as you go on you are given more and more freedom to shape your own course so that it matches your creative identity and future professional practice.
The course turns ambitious new writers and storytellers into all-round story creators. After the Creative Writing course, there are many routes you can take: you can work as an independent maker, or within a publishing house, as a programmer for media, venues, festivals and events, as a teacher or in sectors where a clear writing style is valued. You will be able to set yourself apart from others because you have experience as a maker, know what writers go through and have an extensive network.
