Start Writing That Novel


Venue: The Crescent

Time: 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Price: £50 | £45

They say everyone has a novel inside them, but most don’t get as far as the first word.

This workshop is designed to get your masterpiece out of your head and onto the page.

Over the course of the day, we will focus on drawing up your list of characters, sketching out your plot, getting a grip on your story and taking that all-important first step.

Suitable for beginners and more experienced writers alike, the workshop will provide a fun and creative environment full of support and encouragement.

Come with a head full of ideas and start writing that novel that you’ve always wanted to write.
