2022 could be the year you write that novel, with the support of local writers Claire Fuller and Judith Heneghan! This 20-week course, taught jointly by Claire and Judith, will explore the various key elements of novel writing, from plot to character to voice – and much more.
If you are a dedicated reader and determined to write something of your own, this could could be your launch-pad!
As the course progresses you will be expected to work on your project and present excerpts.
Peer support will be as important on the course as input/guidance from the tutors.
