Creative Writing in Tallin

From the 21st to the 28th of July, Tallin University offers a one week summer course in English focused on “Finding your voice”, tutored by Peter Salmon. Registration is now opened

Don’t be a ‘writer.’ Be writing.

William Faulkner.

There are lots of people who want to be writers, but how many want to push themselves to ‘be writing’? To explore all that words can do, to themselves and the world?

Novelist Peter Salmon will help the participants to develop their unique, individual voice, and look at ways to shape their vision into art. Whatever your level of experience, whatever your chosen form, he will push you to find a way of expression that will challenge both you and the reader. Lazy writers need not apply.


This summer course is suitable for all people who are interested in Creative Writing. During the course you will be expected to attend workshops and seminars, submit your work for peer review and create a portfolio of your own writing. The expected English language proficiency is C1 or equivalent (advanced proficiency).

Upon full participation and the completion of the course, the students will be awarded 3 ECTS points.

Course fee

350 EUR. For students 300 EUR. Accommodation and meals are not included in the the price. NB! Read also about scholarships.
