Everything you need to know to write your novel or memoir in 2019
A workshop with Natalie Sprite.
Spend a weekend laying down the bones of your novel or memoir. Find your characters and what they care about. Map out the plot and structure of your book and write the key scenes.
Over two days we will be using a range of literary and meditation exercises to support you to write the story you need to write. To write is to be vulnerable. Dive deep and create work that matters.
The weekend is hands on. Every aspect of literary craft will be taught on a practical level. You will be putting words on the page and creating scenes that will give you the shape of your book. You will leave with a solid body of work, some clear literary tools and a way forward to write the book you need to write.
