Got a great idea for a novel but don’t know where to start? Always dabbled in poetry but need a little guidance? Are you sitting on a fascinating life story but the task of writing it down seems daunting? Starting Blocks is a hands-on workshop that will take you through the basic elements of creative writing, such as description, character, plot, structure, dialogue and voice, as we explore how to draw a reader in and keep them there. The workshop will be tailor-made to the participants and, as such, is open to writers of any genre.
