Workshop Your Fiction • Course 32
4 October - 13 December 2007 @ Housman's Bookshop, London, N1

TO undertake a novel is a long, often lonely, experience. Many people begin a book only to lose momentum. This workshop is an opportunity for those working on novels or short stories to receive constructive feedback, inspiration and a deadline.

This short course will consist of readings and discussions of your work-in-progress. Sessions will include:

• techniques to develop your novel or short story
• advice on how to arrange and expand your material
• help if you've hit a block
• a chance to create work that feeds into your manuscript
• the opportunity to have writing read and discussed
• learning how to edit to become a more objective critic of your own work

It is not necessary to have written before, but because this workshop will be generated by the work students produce, you must be committed to bringing work for discussion. Constructive feedback and a weekly deadline will encourage you to steam ahead with your prose.

To receive the best feedback, you'll need to bring photocopies of the excerpts you are reading. These will be marked up and returned to you. Maximum number of words per person at each session: 1300 - 1400 words

By post: Enrolment will be confirmed on receipt of your £60 deposit. Payment in full is due by 27 September. Download a brochure for a booking form and information on where to send your cheque. Online: To pay by credit/debit card, you will need to pay the full amount. Course fee: £198
