Event description
Write a Pocket Novel, see your book in the shops and earn money.

About this Event

Have you always wanted to write a novel but feel too daunted by the prospect?

Maybe you have started one but then given up in frustration.

Perhaps the idea of trying to sell it to a publisher once you have finished the hard work of writing has put you off.

Come along to this workshop and learn how to write pocket novel romances.

Writing a pocket novel is a fantastic way of teaching yourself how to write and gives you the possibility of seeing your story in paperback on the shelves of major shops such as Tesco and WHSmith. My Weekly and The People’s Friend magazines both publish pocket novels and are unusual in the publishing industry for looking at unsolicited manuscripts.

Ken Preston will show you how and what to write about, how to fire up your imagination for those ideas, how to keep writing when you would rather do anything else but write, how to edit your work and how to sell it.

Handouts will be provided at the session.

Please bring a pen and notebook.

Ken’s workshops manage to be extremely practical but not limiting. You feel able to explore the topic, to try out ideas and just to enjoy the atmosphere he creates. Yet throughout it all, you are getting specific, informed, useful information from a writer who has done exactly what you want to do. I came away having had a good time and feeling fired up, ready to write.

This course was ideal for me, as someone who has been away from the writing world for a long time and talking about formats and structures was great. I would have enjoyed a longer course as I was enjoying it so much.
