Exploring Point of View with Wyl Menmuir
Date: 26th January 2018, Time: 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm, Location: The Writers’ Block, Cornwall College Redruth.
Creative writing for adults
Whether you’re writing novels or short stories, all writing comes from a point of view. The choices you make about who narrates your story and how can make or break your story and are as important as the story itself. In this workshop with novelist and short story writer, Wyl Menmuir you’ll explore and experiment with a range of ways to employ point of view. Wyl Menmuir is a novelist and editor based in Cornwall. His bestselling debut novel, The Many, was long-listed for the 2016 Man Booker prize. Light refreshments provided.
Tickets £20. Contact Helen Reynolds for more information.
