From Transylvania to Sedbergh
A 6 week creative writing workshop tutored by Vlad Marinescu

‘Bloody good writing techniques for writing your novel and letting your stories soar.’

Together, we will explore simple and advanced writing techniques, from thinking about the premise of your story, through structure & plotting, character development, to building the world your heroines and heroes will face. You will be able to adapt them to your personal style through a hands-on, practical approach which you can then apply to further develop and complete the stories you want to tell and readers want to read.

The course will take place in the Rawthey Room, 72A Main Street, above Sedbergh Information Centre starting at 7.00 pm, on Thursday May 18th and continuing on May 25th,  June 8th, 15th, 29th & July 6th.
