General information

This course will help you get started as a writer, or develop as a writer, by enabling you to improve your existing skills and cultivate your imagination. It will guide you through the process of writing, from brainstorming to writing to revising. Creative Writing in English course is led by acclaimed authors also experienced in teaching. 

Do you find that walking or travelling or spending time in nature springs words and stories into your mind? This workshop will draw on this powerful inspiration, with stimulus activities designed to stretch and surprise you into new work. It will help you to craft fiction and non-fiction, write convincing characters and evoke settings.

Participants will spend time both outside and indoors – walking, writing and talking through ideas and will include guided writing activities. We will also spend time discussing key extracts from published writing and reflecting on each other’s work, with attention on its impact for readers.

This is an opportunity to concentrate on your own creativity for a week in a supportive environment with other people of similar interests. It will be suitable for both beginners and those already on a pathway who want to develop their writing skills further.


Tallinn Summer School arranges accommodation for foreign participants at student dormitory (5-minutes walk from the university, double and triple rooms).
