Got an idea for a novel but not sure how to begin? Part way through and need some advice and a little direction? In a series of informal and interactive writing workshops we’ll explore the practicalities of novel writing. Demystify the process by looking at dialogue, characterisation, planning and plotting, sensory writing, finding inspiration, adding polish, pitching an idea and how to stay on course. Suitable for all aspiring writers.
