Sat 30 Nov 2019 - 10:30 am
Do you have an idea for a novel that you'd like to develop further? Or have you started a novel and are not sure where to go next? Through class discussion and practical exercises, this masterclass will help you to pinpoint what your novel is really about, enabling you to describe it in an 'elevator pitch'.
It'll also help you to identify whose story it is that you're telling and will offer ways of thinking and practical techniques to help you develop your ideas and put them together into a workable plot.
