On the other hand, I did find the notebook useful when sitting down in the evening to write, as a place to scribble random ideas and fragments, or crazy ideas that occur when I am sitting drinking with my husband. Challenging but a rare opportunity in a module to make your voice heard and do things your way. I wrote a story set at Heathrow T5, about a woman waiting to meet a man who is never going to return. I had repeatedly tried to have a poetry collection published; if I approached a publisher now I would hardly feel the sting of rejection when it came. I was also delighted to pass the A module with Distinction. Some websites do offer advice and encouragement to writers. Computing requirements A computing device with a browser and broadband internet access is required for this module.
I am still making up my mind about the Level 3 Creative Writing module, but will certainly continue writing poetry. This module is expected to start for the last time in October I found that it was quite limited – I don’t really know what I expected in terms of ‘leeway’, but I just felt constrained and it wasn’t until the EMA that we were sort of free to do what we wanted and I received my highest mark. You will have a tutor who will help you with the study material and mark and comment on your written work, and whom you can ask for advice and guidance both in online forums and by telephone or email.

And having dispensed with the notion of calling the show The Madwoman in the Attic too literalThe Attic Sessions came into being. I learned to count the beats of a line on my fingers, and mutter my compositions to myself as I wrote. At the same time I am finding it hard to fill out my ideas to a novel-length piece now The publisher, Sheila Wakefield Red Squirrel Press has published my poetry so she knew my work and had seen wtiting individual stories and approached me with the idea of doing a collection.

Basically, what Cathy said. I also didn’t feel a connection with my tutor – my tutor seemed to ‘pick’ at the tiniest of details, maybe that is a good thing? The centenary of the Easter Rising is being commemorated throughout the year, but March and April are the zenith of the celebrations so Lia wrjting the perfect choice.
It would only be the cherry topping of pique on my black forest gateau of despair. I would recommend it to anyone but then I did well from it.
Essentially the course teachings made me worse! Posted in poetry Tagged autobiographical Leave a comment.
I think some of those have been weeded out, but where students get a duff or lacklustre tutor there is a huge amount of support from other students. It is not just the rhythm and the sound of the letters, but also the musical note. Writong loved poetry after that and got a good result, after nearly not bothering with that TMA at all!

This is an OU level 2 module and builds on the OU level 1 modules Discovering the arts and humanities Aor The arts past and present AA now discontinuedand Voices, texts and material culture A I was blessed with an excellent tutor who was really enthusiastic and supportive. In the end I shared them with the novelist and editor John Murray on a course in Greece because I was desperate to get an outside perspective on whether they worked.
Having looked at some of the other courses out there i would say it’s certainly one of the best, and the level of support is very good. Just one more observation As well doing some study for its own sake I am hoping that the course will give me insight into other writing fields and encourage me to venture beyond my personal ‘comfort zone’. As additional affordability checks are required when processing joint loan applications, unfortunately, an instant decision cannot be given.
I thought that I would struggle with the poetry element but in fact, this was where I gained my best marks.

I couldn’t get my head round the apparent obsession with ‘modern’ poetry which was never properly defined and had a few terse exchanges of opinion with my tutor. To send us reviews on modules you have studied with us, please click the sign in button below. A residential school would also be great.
