In this workshop you will look at the key aspects of fiction writing. You will explore ways to create intriguing characters, generate plot, and use dialogue effectively, as well as considering point of view, the importance of conflict, and how to effectively use setting. With the aid of writing prompts, participants will have the chance to put into practice what they have learned, and will receive feedback on their work in a fun and supportive environment.
