Have you always wanted to write a novel?

Whether you've got a great idea but aren't sure how to begin or have an unfinished manuscript gathering dust under your bed, this practical and playful course will offer exercises and advice to get your novel underway.

The course will suit both the beginner and those with more experience who are interested in honing a novel or who are seeking fresh inspiration.

On this course you will:

- explore the essential aspects of novel writing (including character development, setting, point of view, structure and plot)
- put these elements into practice through a series of creative writing exercises
- better understand your unique writing 'voice' and the story you want to tell
- consider your individual ideas and needs as a writer.

What will I gain?

By the end of the course you'll have the knowledge, practical skills and confidence to have a novel underway.
