Evening 4 – 7 September
Developing your story into a cohesive whole
Evening 5 – 14 September

Each evening will contain a mix of practical exercises and easy-to-understand information, and there will be plenty of time during and in-between classes to apply what you learn to your writing projects.
By the end of the course you should have a solid understanding of what you need to do to develop a novel into an engaging read that people will want to share.
