Dates — February 24th to March 31st 2014
The course will cover a six-week period, consisting of two-hour workshops on Monday mornings from 10:30 to 12:30.
Each session will focus on a set topic, covering one of the essential elements required for writing fiction. Students will be given assignments to complete, which will be marked and returned prior to the next session. Understanding the various elements through practical application, together with the workshops, will gradually build towards a complete understanding of how to create stories with that ‘must read’ quality.
Week One: Discovering the essential elements of fiction
Week Two: Creating characters readers will care about
Week Three: Writing effective dialogue
Week Four: Use of settings and backstory
Week Five: Plotting, structure and theme
Week Six: Putting it all together
The final session will be followed by an optional end of course lunch. The owner of the venue has offered to put on a special menu at an advantageous rate.
The weekly sessions will be held at The Brasserie, Bahia Casares Golf Course, Casares Costa, 29690, Casares.
