Capturing the first draft of a novel

GENRE: Fiction
Totleigh Barton

If you’ve started to write a novel and you’re stuck part-way through, or if you have tried novel-writing many times and floundered, or even if you are simply thinking of writing a novel, this course is for you. Through workshops and tutorials, we will guide you through the decisions and choices you need to be aware of when you approach a first draft. We will discuss research, craft, plot, opening pages and characterisation, all the essentials of long fiction. Bring your ideas and your work.

Single room price: £750
Shared room price: £700

Grants are available to help with the course fee
