Literary fiction can be slippery, but writing is mostly hard work, getting words on the page, process and practicalities. Look at the writing process and the strange transmogrification that turns lived experience, memory and imagination into literature.

Learn how to give life to your characters and authenticity to your world. Faulkner, when asked how to create a convincing character, said: “Believing that she exists.”

You will learn

  • how to write authentic dialogue
  • how to utilise lived experience, memory, research and imagination
  • an understanding of character
  • the importance of word selection, sentence structure and paragraph construction
