Event description

Description

Are you struggling to make progress with your fiction? Suffering with writer’s block? Have you started to hate your own work? Don’t give up – there are ways out of the forest.

Everyone gets in a rut sometimes. This workshop will help you refresh your writing. We’ll discuss examples of how other writers have used unconventional approaches to storytelling, and, based on extracts you’ve submitted to Ruby in advance, look at ways you might shock your own particular work back to life. We’ll also talk about what else stops us making progress and how we can overcome those barriers.

What will you do on the course?

Ruby will tailor this small-group workshop in response to your individual work-in-progress (WIP), but rather than “workshopping” your WIP in the group, we’ll do short exercises, discussion and idea-sharing, taking a step back and giving you tools to apply afterwards.

Who is it for?

If you write prose fiction and are experiencing staleness and self-censoring, this workshop is for you – whether your work is yet to be published or you have several publications behind you. Course participants will need to submit a sample of writing up to a maximum of 2,500 words, by the deadline of 27th September (two weeks before the workshop takes place). Please also send a short paragraph describing why you’re struggling with this piece of writing or your work as a whole.
