There are still places available on the Open University's online creative writing courses. You can do either A215 Creative Writing, which includes fiction, poetry, and life writing, or A363 Advanced Creative Writing, which continues development in fiction, poetry and life writing, and also teaches scriptwriting for radio, stage and screen.
Tutors in Ireland include Nessa O'Mahony, Maureen Boyle, Andrea McCartney, Csilla Toldy and Heather Richardson. Each course lasts seven months and consists of face to face and online tutorials. The course materials are excellent and the guidance and feedback always constructive.
