If you have always wanted to write but are not sure where to start, then join us on our creative writing course being held over five weekday mornings during the Festival.
Run by Rachel Marsh, a University of Surrey graduate, each lesson will focus on a different aspect of the writing process. The classes will be held via Zoom but will be practical and interactive. Each class is a mixture of lecture, discussion, and applied writing. The course is opened to all levels, meaning that each session can be tailored to your own goals.
Maximum 30 people.
Monday: Introduction/Getting Started
Tuesday: Character Development
Wednesday: Writing Dialogue
Thursday: The Plot
Friday: Editing/Getting Published
