Course in creative writing in English, in Verona

 In Events, News

I’m very much looking forward to facilitating a course in creative writing in Verona in February of this year. The course will take place over two days, all day Saturday the 3rd and Sunday the 4th until 13.00.

These two days will be an intensive introduction to some of the tools we need as writers. Together we’ll explore where our stories come from, and how we can transform that single moment of inspiration into a poem, a novel or a play.

We’ll examine how to create characters that live and breathe on the page. We’ll look at how to structure dialogue. And we’ll discuss the challenges that are part and parcel of all writing and rewriting.

Places on the course will be limited so that everyone and their work can be given due attention, and participants will need a good level of English in order to take part.

It’s important to have fun, too – and we will.

On Sunday, we’ll all have lunch together once the morning session finishes. Afterwards, each participant will have the opportunity to read what they have written – no matter how short it is – to a supportive and encouraging audience.

The aim is to get everyone started on their own personal creative project. Putting those first words on the page is often the biggest hurdle we face as writers.

My approach is practical and born out of twenty years’ experience – as a teacher of creative writing, and as a novelist. We will engage with exercises that stimulate creativity and help to foster the confidence that all writers need in order to begin.

Also during those early days of February, I will present my new novel, Come Cade la Luce, and discuss the novelist’s process of taking our characters along with us on a journey that begins with a moment of inspiration and ends with a finished piece of work. Booking & queries: follow this link.
