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.

Level: Beginner

Entry requirement: No experience is required.

Where you'll learn: You will be studying creative writing in a UNESCO City of Literature, and be based in the School of Arts and Humanities on the City Campus.

You will find modern teaching spaces and quiet study environments to develop your ideas and writing.

You'll also have access to our library to use outside of your short course; whilst you can't reserve or take away books, you are welcome to use them as a resource for research and referencing.

Here's what our previous attendees said:

Tutor profile: Megan Taylor is the author of three novels, How We Were Lost, The Dawning and The Lives of Ghosts and a short story collection, The Woman Under the Ground.

She has an MA in Novel Writing with Distinction from Manchester Metropolitan University, and has enjoyed running creative writing workshops for many years.
