Who it's for
Suitable for beginning writers and those with a little experience, the Introduction to Writing Fiction is a great place to start for people who have always fancied writing but have never had the confidence to start. It’s similarly a good refresher for those who may have tried their hand before but have lost the habit or would like a jump-start form a professional tutor and experienced writer.
How you'll learn
Using a mixture of readings, practical exercises and discussion, participants in this writing workshop learn all about the basics of writing compelling and publishable fiction. The aim is to have a complete short story to show by the end the course.
