12th and 13th April 2013, Hotel du Vin Tunbridge Wells
Have you started writing a novel but aren’t sure where to go next? Do you want some guidance on what you’ve written so far? In THE NUTS AND BOLTS OF THE NOVEL, Audrey Niffenegger, an experienced creative writing teacher as well as bestselling author of The Time Traveler’s Wife and Her Fearful Symmetry, will delve deeply into two key elements of the novel; structure and character.
In the beautiful setting of the Hotel du Vin in Tunbridge Wells, this is a unique opportunity to spend time with Audrey Niffenegger as she helps you take your next steps in the development of your novel. Attendees will be asked to send in the beginning of their novel a week ahead of the start of the course, in order that Audrey can familiarise herself with everyone’s work and focus on as many individual novel-related problems as possible over the two-day course. There are only fourteen places available; writers of both literary and genre fiction are welcome.
Included in the course will be tea, coffee, pastries and lunch over the two days, and a rewarding glass of wine!
