exciting process of developing your narrative. We will explore the bare bones of writing fiction – sourcing ideas, plot, character, setting, dialogue and point of view. This structured, focused course will send you away knowing what you need to do to finish your fiction project, and leave you feeling surprised at how much progress you’ve made.
