• Jan 5, 2021 from 10:00am to 12:30pm
  • Location: Online from Collage Writing Room
  • Latest Activity: Dec 2, 2020

Tuesday mornings, 10am-12.30pm; Jan 5, 12, 19, 26, Feb 2, 9. Virtual Writing Room via ZOOM video conference & correspondence.

This course is for people who have done a previous course at Collage Writing Room with Giovanna, or who are some way into a life writing project.

Over 6 weeks, we will explore how to shape and structure our writing in a compelling and novelistic way. We will learn ways to hook our readers into our story, keep them turning the pages, charm and alarm them with our characters and reveal fascinating, relatable truths about our lives. We will investigate what is meant by a strong voice in memoir and understand how stylistic devices like dialogue, scene building, setting description, and suspense creates a vivid world the reader can disappear inside. As well as reading extracts from published memoirists, nominated students will have the chance to workshop extracts of their writing each week. All levels welcome.

Cost £125 (email kate@collage-arts.org to register and receive payment link)

We would love to welcome you to our writing community where you can progress your work, share ideas with other writers, and focus on your writing away from distractions.
