Struggling to know where to start? Are your character names and personalities eluding you? Do you hit road blocks and don't know where to go next?

If you’ve answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions then this workshop is for you!

Come along and let horror writer Marie Anne Cope guide you along the journey to planning your novel. With tips on picking your characters’ names and developing them into real people and advice on mapping out the bones of your story before fleshing it out; this six week course will give you the tools and inspiration to get to Chapter 1 and beyond.

*********************

Week 1 – Cast Your Story
25th January

Here we’ll be looking at the characters that will be taking centre stage in your story and giving them an identity. We may even get chance to look at your supporting cast too!

Week 2 – Step Forward and Introduce Yourself
1st February

This is the time you interview your characters and find out who they are, where they come from, what they like and don’t like. Yep, you’ve guessed it, we’re transforming your cast into REAL people.

Weeks 3 & 4 – Tell me Your Story
22 February and 1 March

Here’s your chance to start thinking about your story and what the overarching thread is. We will then look to see how your cast fits into and moves your story forward as we start getting your story out of your head and onto the page – in note form.

Week 5 – Plot Your Story
8th March

Once you’ve finished getting your story out of your head and onto the page, we will then plot it on a timeline. Your cast will help you with this.

Week 6 – Delve Deeper Into Your Story
15th March

This is where you get the chance to add meat to the skeleton of your timeline as we begin to create a detailed storyline.
