Online Workshop: Novel Writing
Sat 27 - Sun 28 Feb 2021, 10.30am - 4pm
If you’ve always wanted to write a novel but don’t know where to start, or if you’ve started several but never finished one, this online creative writing workshop with novelist Clare Fisher will help you take your writing further.
Over the course of two days, this online workshop will enhance your skills in how to imagine, plan and write your novel. You’ll learn more about your strengths and ambitions as a writer, your chosen genre, target reader, what you are wanting to communicate and whether you need to do any research.
Through in-depth writing, planning and critical reading exercises, you will develop a schedule for your novel’s completion and a skeleton plot, as well as experimenting with different techniques for creating characters, voices, settings and scenes. You will have time to engage with Clare and other participants via Zoom, while having the chance to write on your own before coming back to the group. You will not be under obligation to share your work and experiences, though this can be beneficial to the process.
