Description

Working on your fiction writing? Improve your technique with this intensive course from Open Study College. You will learn the basic principles of fiction plus techniques which will help you engage your readers with quality writing.

Some of the areas which will be covered include structure, genre, reader identification, plot, tension, and twists. You will also learn to deal with the business side of writing, such as how to work with agents, keep records and pay income tax on your earnings.

This course is conveniently designed for home study, providing you with unbeatable flexibility. You can study whenever and from wherever you would like, and will have access to a tutor via email. The course will be assessed written examinations and you will have one full year to complete the requirements, so you can work at your own pace.

At the end of this course successful learners will receive a level 3 NCFE Award certificate of achievement, signifying that it is independently accredited at a level of learning equivalent to level 3 on The Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) for England, Wales and Northern Ireland (where level 2 and level 3 courses are similar in difficulty to GCSEs and A Levels, respectively). NCFE is recognised as an Awarding Organisation by the qualification regulators for England, Wales, and Northern Ireland.
