Suitable for ages 16+

Booking Required

If writing a novel is something you’ve always wanted to do then make 2020 your ‘year of the novel’.  Join novelist and creative writing tutor Tracey Iceton as she introduces the craft of novel writing. Drawing on her own creative practice and doctoral research in novel writing, Tracey steers writers through plotting, characterisation and narrative approaches, helps writers plan their novel projects effectively and get writing and even offers advice on what to do with that finished masterpiece. Writing activities allow participants to develop ideas while supportive, constructive feedback enables them to get started on their first novel or improve a work-in-progress. Here is the opportunity to get that novel written down, typed up and, hopefully, into print!


The course costs £75 per person and will run from 10am-12noon for five fortnightly sessions on 23 January, 6 February, 20 February, 5 March, 19 March.
