THE NOVEL, OUTSIDE AND IN

This course, specifically designed for beginners, examines the relationship between reading and writing. Learning from the masters of our craft, we’ll begin to explore and recognise techniques and styles which evoke the upmost dramatic intrigue and story-telling. Looking at playing with genre, conflict and contrast, as well as the importance of editing and revision, you’ll be encouraged to begin piecing the fragments of ideas, old and new, together. You’ll learn the foundation exercises which will see you through your writing life, exploring a variety of techniques designed by top literary practitioners.

Week Two - 12th - 19th October 2011

FINDING THE INDIVIDUAL

What makes your novel stand out? How do we develop our story? Looking in detail at key literary devices, we’ll begin to work out what makes your work special. We’ll examine the power of revealing secrets, the importance of structure, techniques to develop narrative voice and dialogue, rhetoric and style, timing, pace and sequence, as well as the use of imagery and analogy. This course is designed to give you the courage and craft to tell your story with confidence and skill.
