Weekly Creative Writing Classes
Each session follows a theme, exploring different aspects of storytelling. Whether you hanker to write a novel, work on a memoir or are simply in search of inspiration, you will benefit from my support as a writing coach.
Workshops include exercises to stimulate creativity, thought-provoking discussions of short extracts by published authors, and opportunities to read your own work - although this is definitely not compulsory! You might have a work in progress and are now "stuck", or have written previously and need a fresh start, or you may just want to experiment with creative ideas and see if writing is for you.
Examples of topics covered:
Create Engaging Characters: are your protagonists interesting enough that the reader wants to know more?
Where Are You Going With This?: does your story (fiction or non-fiction) have a narrative thread?
The Importance of Time and Place: how can you evoke a specific location or period in time?
Writer's Block: how to overcome the dreaded blank page
