Designed for those eager to enrich their craft and embark on the journey of writing a book or long form work, this course is for prospective authors who are keen on writing non-fiction narrative on a variety of human rights topics: from climate justice to gender equality; from racial justice to social justice at large.

Under the guidance of Professor Andrew Leon Hanna, author of 25 Million Sparks: The Untold Story of Refugee Entrepreneurs (Cambridge University Press), participants will embark on a transformative journey, learning about the principles of narrative non-fiction writing, developing their own Capstone Project (~2,000-word piece) and receiving tailored personal feedback to nurture their ideas.

Drawing inspiration from live webinars with renowned authors and publishers - who will share their tactical wisdom, firsthand experiences and writing tips - participants will reinforce their writing skills and methods while also getting practical advice on navigating the whole path from the first spark to publication.

Over the span of six weeks, our online programme will provide a collaborative environment that celebrates community, diversity and inclusivity. The course, open to participants from diverse backgrounds, nationalities and experiences, is tailored to resonate with all those who seek to harness the power of the written word for profound social change. We will actively encourage creative brainstorming and support sharing feedback among participants.
