ABOUT THE COURSE

WEEK ONE - Introduction to character. Creating interesting three-dimensional characters, exploring wants and needs, tailoring strengths and weaknesses. Learning techniques to encourage a regular writing routine.

WEEK TWO - Setting the story in place and time and finding its intended audience. Creating clean sentences and paragraphs, and the key differences between ‘show don’t tell.’

WEEK THREE - Plot and Structure, an analysis of three-act structure, focusing on the key turning points that shape a character’s journey through the story.

WEEK FOUR- A workshopping of each story with group feedback. A brief insight into editing, revising and what to do next.

Each week participants will go home with something to work on for the following week’s class, this will also help to kick start a regular writing routine.
