Tutor: Patricia Mullin

This ten week creative writing course gives participants an unrivalled opportunity to connect and engage with the art and artefacts in the Robert and Lisa Sainsbury Collection, while developing creative writing and storytelling skills. Throughout the course there will be regular contributions from the learning, curatorial and collections teams.

Sessions will cover beginnings and endings, characterisation, narrative drive, action, dramatic tension, dialogue and structure of the short story. Guided by the author Patricia Mullin, this is a chance to discover the mechanics and central tenets of creative writing. This course is suitable for those wishing to initiate new works of writing and for beginners and more experienced writers alike.

Patricia Mullin (MA) is an experienced creative writing tutor and graduate of Central Saint Martins, Goldsmiths College and Norwich University of the Arts.
