Local writer, Alison Knight from Cherhill, is using her years of experience as a student of creative writing to teach new writers in evening classes at Wiltshire College.
She will be teaching a ten week course of evening classes on Tuesdays in Chippenham from January. ‘It’s called Starting to Write,’ said Alison. ‘A perfect opportunity to get started on that writing project you’ve been thinking about, or to explore different types of writing.’
Alison’s first two books – Off the Record and Rescue Me – are contemporary women’s fiction published under the pen name of Alison Rose. Her third book, Rosie Goes to War, is a young adult time-slip adventure written as Alison Knight, is being released in April 2016. ‘It’s the first in a series of stories about Rosie,’ explains Alison. ‘I’m very excited about going to my book launch at the London Book Fair, and undertaking a tour of schools to talk about writing the story.’
Alison is still a keen student. ‘I’ve found that teaching creative writing to new writers is really inspiring. Everyone has a tale to tell, and each of us sees the world slightly differently from other people.’
The course, which is suitable for anyone with an interest in creative writing starts on Tuesday, 12th January in Chippenham, from 7-9pm.
