What we’ll do :
A wide-ranging workshop for people who are working on a novel, at any point from starting to final editing, and are keen to make solid progress. We’re happy to discuss crime novels, historical novels or novels of no genre at all. Using practical exercises and games alongside various writing techniques and discussion we will cover (amongst other things) : character, setting, dialogue, editing, transferring your work to film/radio and approaching agents and editors. We’ll also look at what happens after publication – how to make the most of publicity, readings and author events.
