Creative writing courses

Question

Are there really no options besides the Open University where creative writing courses could be taken in Brussels? The Brussels Writers' Group is merely a group which meets once a week for readings and discussion, but does not offer any classes, I believe.
I thought it would be much easier to find such a course considering that, as I have been told, there is such a big expat English-speaking community here in Brussels. I am a PhD student and researcher at the VUB (Vrije Universiteit Brussel), which I have begun in April, but I am still unacquainted with the city as I do not really know anyone here.
I am at a loss, please help as my PhD, while very interesting, does not provide that creative outlet that I need, and which I have never really addressed until now.

Much obliged.

From the archives

I have had a look and there does not seem to be anything except the OU which (or whom) I studied with to get my degree. The course is quite expensive as I am no longer working, but same as you would like to get into creative writing. If you hear of anything please let me know because as you say the Brussels writing group is for readings and discussions although may be quite interesting.
