Our Creative Writing students have been inspired by award winning writer and poet Sophie Sparham, who joined them for an afternoon writing workshop where she shared her advice and top tips.

Under the guidance of Sophie, the group of first- and second-year students worked on several tasks which included character creation and poetry writing, before coming together to share their work and ideas.

At Nottingham College we’re industry focused and dedicated to helping you get where you want to be so you can open the doors to your future! Our courses help to inspire you to think about your future and start working towards your goals right away and our dedicated team of tutors put our students at the heart of all that they do. 

It has been a pleasure having Sophie lead a poetry session with our L3 Creative Writing students. Sophie’s writing is original, and the themes explored are current and unique. I know the students will gain a lot from her visit and the writing tasks delivered. I hope that they are as inspired as I am by her poetry and vibrant character.’

First year student Aaliyah Dyer told us the workshop has improved her confidence.

The workshop Sophie delivered has inspired our students, who left feeling more confident about their work and embraced the opportunity to meet a successful writer. Here’s what some of them had to say:

I found today really exciting. It was great to meet someone who made it as a writer and Sophie has made me feel more confident about writing.”

- Aaliyah Dyer, First Year Creative Writing student.

Today has been great! Meeting Sophie has been a brilliant experience. I had never written poetry before so learning the process was truly a delight.” 

 — - Taylor Lowe, Second year Creative Writing for Media.

I’ve loved every second of the workshop. It was amazing to meet Sophie and get a chance to talk to someone who has made it as a poet. It has given me new hope for my future as I love writing and poetry myself and it’s something I’d love to do for a living. 

 — - Megz Worton, Year 1 Creative Writing for the Media student.
