Course Summary

The aim of the course is for learners to develop their ideas and structure for writing a full-length novel.

Entry requirements

This experience is for adults aged 19+.  Children over the age of 12 can attend if they attend with a guardian. Please contact us for further information.

There are no formal entry requirements - all you need is enthusiasm and a keen interest in literature!

Course Content

During the session, areas covered will include how to ensure your work engages with the relevance and reader of today - regardless of the time setting of the novel; knowing your ‘genre’; selecting the voice – first or third person; and the importance of planning not only the story but also your main character’s journey, both emotional and physical. 

Learners will also be advised on ways to keep the momentum, both in the development of the work and also for the intended reader.

How will I be assessed?

You will workshop your writing with other members of the group, receiving and supplying constructive, kind notes for improvement. You may submit writing for the workshop session anonymously if you so wish.

Are there any additional costs or specialist equipment required?

Please bring a notebook and pen or a laptop.

A light lunch and soft refreshments will be provided and are inclusive of the price paid.
