Starting to Write Non-Fiction

Turning real-life material into a story

Monday December 9th - Saturday December 14th 2019

The Hurst

At the heart of all good non-fiction is a writer’s passion. This course, ideal for those who are new to writing non-fiction, is your chance to explore your passions,
obsessions or memories and to develop your writing in a supportive and inspiring environment. Kapka and Rory will offer detailed advice on motivation, starting points, structure, character and description of place, exploring the transformation of experience – our own and others’ – into stories and books.

Single room price: £835

 

Grants are available to help with the course fee
