The aim of this workshop is to get our first chapters up and running. And the really tricky bit – to keep going. We will also look at how not to write our novels to avoid the trapdoors that many first time novelists fall through. 

There will also be a Q & A session with the course tutor, a published and critically acclaimed novelist, where participants can ask about all aspects of writing a novel, seeking publication and beyond. This course is designed for both aspiring novelists and those who’ve never managed to complete their ambitious projects.
