Event Details

Overview

Maintaining momentum is one of the hardest parts of finishing a novel. Wrestling with unforeseen structural, plotting or character difficulties can seem impossible and sap the life from your creative process. This weekend can revitalise your writing.

Led by Gillian Slovo, UEA Guardian Masterclass tutor and author of 12 novels, including Red Dust (later adapted for cinema) and the Orange Prize shortlisted Ice Road, the masterclass provides inspiration, support and practical assistance. The course consists of short exercises designed to help you get a fresh perspective on your work, as well as providing talking points for individual feedback to help you identify your weak spots and work out how to address them.

Tutor profile

Gillian Slovo has published 12 novels, including the Orange Prize shortlisted Ice Road, and Red Dust which was made into a film, and a family memoir Every Secret Thing. She is the author of two verbatim plays, Guantanamo and The Riots, as well as ghostwriter on Ahmed Errachidi's The General. She is currently writing her thirteenth novel and is also the President of English PEN.
