Writing the Wild: Creative and Narrative Non-fiction That Bites
Come and join a five week workshop to help you write the most evocative Creative Non-Fiction of your life. Using a unique structure the five week/ten hour synchronous programme covers five crucial aspects of writing compelling, satisfying and interesting creative and narrative non-fiction:
Week 1. Finding your voice, finding your story:
How to get started on a new piece of writing
Week 2. Writing from the gut:
How to get that initial draft down on the page
Week 3. Writing from the head:
How to uncover the ‘story’ you really want to tell
Week 4. Writing from the heart:
How to edit and revise so that your prose goes deeper still, and takes the reader with you
Week 5. Nailing the openings and endings, and finding a title that sings:
How to draft a compelling opening, land those last few lines, and find a title that does plenty of the heavy lifting!
Whether you’re writing memoir, life-writing, nature, travel, ekphrastic or historical prose this workshop will provide space to explore, develop and deepen your non-fiction writing. With supportive opportunities to share and get feedback on work-in-progress, these are affordable and accessible sessions from an award winning writer and facilitator, of thirty years experience.
Will I have a chance to share my work?
There will be regular chances throughout the five weeks to share work-in-progress and receive constructive and supportive feedback in the group. (Guidance on how to give and receive feedback will be sent before the five weeks begins.)
