Workshop Overview

Writing the novel requires a journey across gorgeous but sometimes treacherous terrain. In this workshop, we’ll pack a suitcase full of techniques to guide us. First, we’ll study the five fundamentals of fiction, then apply them to our novels through structured writing and worksheets. Then, we’ll look at the equally important emotional tools you’ll need, devising ways to stay confident about your work and find time for it. You’ll go home with your bag packed with all the preparation for writing completed and inspiring techniques so that you are ready to embark upon this creative journey.
