Writing feedback workshops

"What interested the critic Edwin Denby, said his friend Frank O’Hara, was an incessant question: “What does each second mean, and how is the span of attention used to make it a longer or shorter experience?”

These 8-weeks will explore the experience of critiquing stories, poem and general creative work in progress and being critiqued by others offers insights into our own writing.  It can be a scary thing to do at first - but learning how to become a helpful and insightful critic makes you a better writer.  Held at The Exchange by Agnieszka Studzinska.

Dates and Times

The course will run on Tuesday evenings 7–9 pm on:

The full cost of this 8 week course is £125.


In these evening workshops we will analyse work in progress, explore the strengths and weakness of the writing and offer advice on how a piece of writing can be improved. Each session will offer the opportunity to hear work read out loud, and develop our own writing voice.


Suitable for all levels of writers. There are no requirements to enrol on this course apart from a love of the written word.


Upon completion of this course students are issued a St Mary's University Certificate of Attendance as well as a portfolio of creative writing.
