Sarah's 6 session programme uses proven techniques and strategies to help you develop an effective approach to tackling a large writing project from home. Most suitable for writers who are embarking on a novel for the first time, Sarah will help each participant to develop an approach to successful completion that suits their own context, and recognises the particular challenges of the different phases of a writing project, from generating ideas, to addressing key challenges, to receiving feedback, plotting, editing and pitching. Sarah will use her background in education, psychology and creative writing to inform the sessions, and will set an optional writing exercise with individual feedback that she will provide individually as part of the programme.
