Tools for Storytelling 2022
This updated six-module course delivered face to face fortnightly follows on from Finding Your Voice but can also be undertaken by new students who are sufficiently advanced in topics such as dialogue and point of view. . This practical course shows how you can create fully rounded characters that come alive on the page and inhabit authentic worlds. It covers advanced aspects of point of view, dialogue, the development of plot and structure and also revision. By the end of this course, you will have a greater understanding of how to create compelling fiction. Students will be emailed comprehensive workbooks on each module along with 18 set exercises. Students who are already working on a novel or novella will have the option of submitting an extract of their work that will allow focus on the relevant module. Students can work in their own time, and at their own pace. There is a monthly Zoom meeting with the tutor for all online students. The course is designed to be completed within three months, but we allow a year to complete the course.
Due to the cancellation of Finding Your Voice this face-to face course is not running in 2022. We hope to run it again in 2023.
