Non-Fiction: Work-in-progress

Non-fiction as art

Monday November 19th - Saturday November 24th 2018

Lumb Bank

This course is for people who are in the middle (muddle) of a non-fiction project and need some fresh impetus. Because non-fiction is artful, we will focus on honing your narrative skills and on tightening up the structure, making sure your key themes play together (or in counterpoint). We will also explore strategies to ensure your reader is always in your sightline by using characterisation and dialogue.

Single room price: £770
