Maintaining your novel’s flow and structure

16 July @ 18:30 - 20:30


In this workshop, we’ll be considering how to keep up momentum while juggling different narrative elements and also keeping in mind your story as a whole.

Participants will have the opportunity to discuss their novels and take part in practical writing exercises that will help them balance action with their stories quieter, more reflective moments. You will also be looking more generally at timelines in order to identify the strengths and pinpoint the weaker spots in your novel’s overall structure.

Participants will gain a fresh perspective on their works in progress. It’s very hard to see both the woods and the trees when writing a novel, and this workshop aims to help a little with both.
