The community and adult education programme at Canterbury Christ Church University are running some fabulous day schools and short courses in 2015 – covering a huge range of diverse topics that include philosophy, art, literature, creative writing, cinema, music, photography, mysticism, story-telling, local history and mindfulness.
New for 2015 is a 10 week course called Being a Writer in the 21st Century, which starts on Monday 12 January.
The internet, digital technology and social media have all had a dramatic impact on the publishing landscape, and at a rapidly changing pace.
Being a writer in the digital age offers a wealth of unprecedented opportunities – and challenges – for authors. But to benefit from this exciting entrepreneurial climate, a writer has to become a new creature – an authorpreneur. This course explores the realities and practicalities of writing in the 21 st century, arming writers with essential tools and knowledge to avoid the pitfalls. A comprehensive range of topics will be covered, including marketing, selling and promotion, earning income from writing, the role of agents, publishers, using social media, understanding contracts and payments, methods of working practice, managing your time and indie publishing.
Days and times: Monday 12 January 1-3pm, for 10 weeks
Venue: Canterbury Christ Church University, Kent
