Concordia’s Centre for Continuing Education (CCE) has expanded its course offerings in creative writing to open up new areas of writing practice.
This fall, the CCE will debut courses in poetry and screenwriting, as well as creative non-fiction, memoir-writing and writing for children. Further additions — including several advanced courses — are scheduled to roll out later in the academic year.
True to the CCE’s spirit of life-long learning, this revised program allows students to explore their creativity by taking one course, or enrolling in the Creative Writing Certificate or the newly added diploma programs.
“In designing this program of course offerings, we were thinking of the aspiring as well as more established writers in the Montreal area who are looking to develop and deepen their writing skills within a supportive learning community,” says Brenda Grant, the administrator in charge of curriculum development at the CCE.
The CCE is unique in Montreal and Quebec because it offers English-language non-credit courses to the community at large, often without prerequisites for enrolment.
It is committed to providing accessible and engaging educational opportunity for adult learners: all courses are taught in seminar format, and class sizes are limited. The instructors are practicing professional writers with extensive publication records in their fields.
