The Writers’ Clinic is for anyone who would like to be more confident before they start their writing journey, whether writing a short story or a full-length novel. Aimed at beginners and intermediate writers, the course will kick off with three sessions to inspire, galvanise and empower you.
Topics covered will include how to tell your story: a look at tenses, perspectives and voices; how to plan and plot and how to create great characters and dialogue. There’ll be practical problem-solving, too, for some common complaints, such as ‘telling’ instead of ‘showing’ the reader the action. Other topics tackled will include creating suspense in a story and editing like a professional.
Dates & Times
The course will run on Mondays 11th, 18th, 25th Jan at 4:00-5:30pm.
There are 3 spaces available as 50% bursary for BAME writers on low-income. Please only opt for this ticket if otherwise you would not be able to afford to attend. These are on a first come first serve basis and given through trust and goodwill.
