  • Explore plotting, descriptive writing, narrative structure and character creation in detail, with focused exercises and activities
  • Get detailed advice about submitting work for publication
  • Receive regular feedback on your work
  • By the end of the course, you will have a detailed plan for a novel and outlines for your characters
