Event description

Description

Thursdays, 7:30pm to 9:30pm on 19th, 26th September, 3rd, 17th, 24th October 2019
The Coach House, Oldswinford, Stourbridge.

Five workshops on both the creative and the practical aspects of writing novels and short stories.

You’ll create strong characters, plan plots and discuss dialogue as you write from scratch or develop work you’ve already begun. Through a series of practical workshop exercises, with plenty of opportunity to share your work and ask questions, you’ll learn how to create and sustain suspense, how to keep readers reading ‘just one more chapter’, and how to finish with a satisfying ending.

At the same time you’ll learn about how to submit your work to agents and publishers, plus the essentials you need to know for self-publishing.

You will also find out exactly how to juggle your writing alongside all the other commitments in your life: how to get started, how to keep going when you really do not want to, and what to do when you have finished.

Important: Please note there will be a gap between workshops on 3rd and 17th October, (so no workshop on 10th) for you to work on your fiction piece and bring back with you to the workshop on the 17th.

Tea, coffee, cold drinks and biscuits will be provided.
