History & Writing

Culture, History and Writing Courses at Sutton College

Take a look at the list of courses in our History and Creative Writing Department where we are sure you will find something to inspire and intrigue you…… and maybe ignite your imagination!

 You may want to develop your creative writing skills and start work on the novel or poem that you have somewhere inside you. Perhaps you are keen to learn more about significant periods in world history and the key figures of those times. Whatever you choose, you will benefit from the considerable knowledge of our experienced tutors, all experts in their field and passionate about their subject area.

Our successful ‘History Club’ series of weekly talks continue  covering figures such as Richard III, Lawrence of Arabia, King George II and Charles Darwin. Other talks will look at significant periods and events including ‘Black Abolitionists in Britain’, ‘Marriage, Custody & Domestic Violence in the 1800s’, ‘The Rise & Fall of the Apartheid System’ and ‘The Titanic’. With an eclectic mix of around 30 different two-hour talks over the year, we are confident you will find something that will spark your interest! 

In addition to our ‘History Club’, there is also our ‘History of Art’ series of two-hour, weekly talks. Again, these talks cover diverse areas and events in Art History, including ‘Impressionism: The Art of the Everyday’, ‘Caravaggio: Light & Shadow’ and ‘Modernism: The Art of Experimenting’.

Our ‘Enjoy Your Retirement’ course features a range of talks from guest speakers and also offers afternoon visits to places of interest. The course presents a wonderful opportunity to study alongside fellow retirees! 

There are several Creative Writing courses to choose from, catering for the beginner to those who have been writing for many years. You will look in-depth at styles, genres, and techniques to help develop your work.

As part of our ‘Wellbeing’ series, we also offer Creative Writing courses that recognise the benefits that engaging with creative writing can have on our mental health. Furthermore, there are courses specifically designed to help people find their voice as a writer and to give advice on how to get your work published.

Join us on a course soon and get inspired!
