Faber Academy launches new website with creative writing tips and videos

Faber Academy has launched a new website to support students on its writing courses, which will include videos, articles from tutors and alumni and an area where students can share their work with classmates.

The website, faberacademy.co.uk, will also be a way for prospective students to select and sign up to courses.

Faber Academy head Catherine Heaney said: "As the academy continues to grow, it is wonderful that we have a space online for writers to share. The strength of our courses comes from the combination of great tutors and dedicated students, and we want the new website to be a place where that sense of community can grow. It's also a great way of introducing new writers to what we offer."

Several new courses are either underway or scheduled, with a hundred students taking part on courses in London and Dublin this week including "Becoming a Poet" and "Memoir and Life Writing".

In January, further new courses will include "Writing Family History" and "Write a Play in Three Months" with Rebecca Lenkiewicz, with new courses in crime fiction and narrative non-fiction starting later in spring 2012.
