Refining Your Novel with Megan Taylor

Saturday 12th January 13:00 - 15:00 at Nottingham

The second part of Megan Taylor's course on novel writing can be used as a follow-on to the earlier course, Beginning Your Novel, or taken alone with no prior experience for those who wish to develop their writing abilities.

Using published examples and playful exercises, this series of workshops will offer participants a deeper understanding of the crucial elements of novel-building including character, setting, point-of-view, and structure. During this course we'll look at genre and endings and how to develop your own critical editing skills. There will also be advice on the practicalities of submitting finalised manuscripts and participants will leave the course with further exercises to continue defining your unique writing voice.

Suitable for writers at all levels, part two of a two-part course which can be booked alone or together, go to for more information
