Online Manuscript Masterclass with Nadine Davidoff
In this full-day online masterclass, freelance book editor and writing teacher Nadine Davidoff will analyse the fundamental principles of compelling prose—whether it be fiction or narrative non-fiction.
What is voice and how does a writer cultivate it? What are the essential components of a powerful opening? How does a writer choose the best angle on their story? What is the most persuasive point of view? What are the options for structure? What are the most effective ways to evoke character and setting?
Drawing on examples from contemporary literature, Nadine’s workshop will expose the hidden architecture that scaffolds the best writing. Writers will come away with a renewed understanding of these key structural principles and how to apply them to their own work.
Davidoff brings extensive teaching and trade publishing experience to this fantastic one-off opportunity. This workshop is for anyone working on an extended piece of writing in fiction or nonfiction and looking to take their work to the next stage of development.
