About this event

Catherine Menon takes an immediate grip on the reader's imagination and doesn't let go: Hilary Mantel

We are delighted to offer this rare opportunity to work with Word Factory mentor, novelist and short story writer Catherine Menon.

This class will focus on how to use research to illuminate and improve your fiction.

Catherine will draw on techniques from science and academia to provide you with a taxonomy of the different types of research most useful at different stages of your writing. She will also identify different research processes and methods that will be most useful in your work, as well as looking at how you can transform your research findings into compelling, credible fiction.

There will be writing exercises to help you get started on your research or develop it further with the specific needs of your fiction in mind.

Details:

The workshop will take place online via Zoom Online Meeting software. It is free to download and you will only need the free version to attend. Please download it and check it is working before the day of the workshop.

We will be online 15 minutes before the advertised start time to allow you to join and test your audio and video is working as it should.

Please try and be somewhere you can concentrate and won't be interrupted. Headphones can be useful if you have some, to cut out other noise.

Class size will be kept to a maximum of 15 people.
