The course covers a six-week period, consisting of two-hour weekly workshops and five assignments to be completed at home and submitted by email for assessment.
Each session will focus on a set topic, covering one of the essential elements required for writing fiction. Each assignment 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 weekly sessions will be held at The Brasserie, Bahia Casares Golf Course, Casares Costa, 29690, Casares.
Course fees: €175
