Inspiration on our doorstep! Creative Writing Workshops

As the Yorkshire Dales has provided me with so much brilliant inspiration for my books and blogs I have decided to use 'Inspiration on our doorstep’ as the theme for these workshops. The Dales have been inspiring artists, musicians and authors for centuries and I am sure that they will provide inspiration for students on these courses.

Numbers on each course will be limited to a maximum of twelve and participants are not only asked to bring some examples of their writing but to join in and contribute. We will start with how to plan and organise writing a story, how to develop characters and use dialogue to best effect. Different genres will be discussed. The whole process of how to get a book published will be covered as will how to work with other authors, editors and publishers to develop your project. The course will culminate with a lively question and answer session which is always a lot of fun!

The aim of these courses are to encourage creative writing, to start to put on paper that story you always wanted to tell the world and to have fun in a stunning place! There will be no tests or pressure to produce results!

The courses will run from 10am to 4pm each day and include morning coffee, lunch and afternoon tea.
