A series of one-off, informal and engaging sessions for beginners. Using fun and simple exercises, we will sit with you around my kitchen table and share our personal tips on the creative writing process. How do you develop and portray effective characters? How do you write authentic-sounding dialogue? How on earth do you begin to tackle the plot of a 100,000 word novel? We will help you build scenes and chapters, using your senses to bring them to life. NB. we will write bits and pieces along the way, but there will be no pressure at all to share unless you want to!
