A ten month WEA course – one Saturday per month
Have you always wanted to write a novel? You might have an idea, a rough draft, some notes or just enthusiasm. On this course we will cover all aspects of novel writing, including plot and structure, point of view, characterisation and much more. Each monthly meeting will include two workshops, as well as feedback sessions. There will be opportunity for you to submit work to the rest of the group for detailed feedback if you want it. People who have done the course before have gone on to complete drafts of their novels. The support and encouragement of the group will help you to start writing and keep writing.
This course is FREE to those on qualifying benefits.
