About this Event

Softwood is delighted to present their first online creative writing festival, with special guests, Cole Moreton and Claire Dyer.

Whether you've already started working on your novel or it's a plan for the future, this intensive 4-day festival will inspire and motivate you through creative writing webinars on the 5 building blocks of creative writing:

  • Character
  • Plot
  • Dialogue
  • Setting
  • Style

The course begins with an informal introduction on Friday 16th October, where you can meet your fellow attendees over a virtual glass of wine on Zoom, meet your course leader, Maddy Glenn, and discuss your writing projects.

Saturday morning includes 2 webinars with live chat and interactive exercises, with the afternoon available for 1-2-1 coaching sessions with Maddy (limited availability, extra payment required). The evening will introduce our first special guest speaker, CLAIRE DYER (award-winning poet and novelist) on a Zoom social call with all the participants, with opportunities for sharing, discussion, and a Q&A.

The festival continues on Sunday morning with more opportunities to book an individual coaching session with Maddy. Sunday afternoon sees the remainder of the webinars to complete your learning. We welcome our second guest author, COLE MORETON to our Sunday evening Zoom session.

The course ends on Monday evening with a final Q&A and plenary session on Zoom.

Book before 1st October to reserve your place for only £75 GBP for all 4 days of the festival.
