Creative Writing Workshop
Everybody has a story to tell. It might be one inspired by your own life or a completely fictional creation. How to Write A Cracking Story workshop will help you tell it. There is no need to have any specialist knowledge of literature or writing, or previous writing experience. The building blocks of storytelling are those of life itself.
The workshops focus on the mechanics of constructing a narrative rather than pure creative writing. Each session will focus on one topic including creating a protagonist, a series of obstacles, a a climactic event and a resolution. These focal points will give participants a straightforward tool kit with which to create an engaging, even enthralling story. By the end of the course participants will also have increased their understanding of how other fictional narratives are constructed, which will bring an extra dimension to their own reading and watching pleasure.

The workshops comprise 3 2-hour online sessions with Adam in groups of up to 6. Session dates are as follows:

  • Monday 17th October @ 11-13:00
  • Monday 31st October @ 11-13:00
  • Monday 14th November @ 11-13:00

Workshop Pricing

  • £175 for members
  • £225 for non-members

Please register with our events manager, Anne-Marie, to confirm your place. Once payment has been made, Zoom links will be shared for each of the session.
