Whether you simply have an idea and many blank pages, or you are already deep into the creative process, this course is all about fictionalising real-life events and people. The tutors will take you through the usual, important elements of any successful novel or story – plot, dialogue, description, characterisation and editing. Yet particular focus will be given to the ways in which autobiography/ true crime/ sporting heroism (for example) can be legitimate factual bases for fiction, creating a genre sometimes known as faction.
