A successful writer must read widely, and then get writing. Participants on this six-week course will be doing plenty of both. Along with your own works-in-progress, we'll look at examples of successful writing, focusing on areas such as: how and where to start; creating your own voice; character building; handling narrative structure; and building tension. Be prepared to discuss the work of others; it's the best way to become your own most important critic!
