About this course
Welcome to A Clearing in the Forest.
This course is 5 days a week for 5 weeks with breaks for weekends. It runs from the 3rd February 2020 to the 6th March 2020.
It is a learning community for people wanting to recharge, expand and deepen their written creative practice. Joel McKerrow is your creative guide and with over a decades experience in the arts and education sectors you can be assured you'll receive not only practical advice on creative process and writing practice but also methodical and inspirational pedagogy.
Each week-day you will receive:
A 15-20min video lesson from Joel McKerrow: These are the main teaching components of the course where Joel will teach you directly from his wealth of knowledge and experience.
- Creative Assignment: This will be your chance to take each days teaching and make it a reality through different writing and creative assignments that Joel will be assigning you each day. This is where the rubber hits the road.
A Reflective Worksheet: These worksheets are downloadable fill-in forms to help you reflect, plan and organise your creative life. These can be done during that day or may be done at a later date if needed.
As with any course, if you do the activities and the worksheets you will maximise your experience. Of course your level of engagement is up to you.
The course will be happening in real time and ideally every student should stay with the pace of the daily lessons to ensure they and the cohort all get the most out of the experience. But there is no pressure, it is possible to work through the lessons at your own pace with access to the course content for 3 months beyond the course finishing date.
Students selecting the mentoring package will have additional support and access to Joel through out the journey.
