Non-Fiction Creative Writing Course: Uncovering your story, finding your voice:
If you are thinking of embarking on a non-fiction work or you are in the the middle (muddle) of a non-fiction project and in need of some fresh impetus then this is the week for you. Whether on personal or social themes non-fiction at its best should be artful, so we will focus on the different elements at play in putting together a compelling story or argument: honing your narrative skills, exploring the art of the interview, while making sure all your key themes work together (or in counterpoint). We will also explore strategies to keep your reader gripped throughout from uncovering a strong authorial voice to developing characterisation, dialogue and the all-important art of self-editing.
