Learn to write with the best.
For aspiring novelists ready to leap in, this course will guide you through the process of planning and beginning your novel, creating new scenes, playing with ideas, finding a voice and establishing a writing practice. Using a combination of targeted writing exercises, group discussion and carefully selected examples, the focus of this course will be on your own writing, with the aim of ending the course with a substantial body of new writing, heading towards a first draft of your novel.
Benefit from the structure of regular classes covering everything from the first conception of an idea through to getting words on a page, narrative structure and style.
Learn from our experienced Course Directors, as well as guest tutors including top authors, and agents/publishers.
Receive a personalised consultation on your project from your tutor.
Get it done. When undertaken with Writing a Novel: Stage 2, this is a flexible alternative to a creative writing MA, designed for people who might be considering a career and who are prepared to engage fully in the hard work involved. Apart from the workshops, you will be devoting as much time as possible between classes to writing.
Receive invaluable feedback by having the chance to present your work to your class of other committed novelists.
