"Whether writing for adults or teenagers, the writer who wants to succeed must aim to create something memorable.
Using tutorials, workshops and one-to-ones, the course will cover the essentials of creating not just any piece of fiction, but one that will linger in the minds of the reader. Topics covered will include: the seed of the story, populating your story, structuring your story, and telling your story, with reference to voice/sense of place/atmosphere, and style.
The course will also include some guidance on maximising your chances of getting a publisher or agent to read your work, and so get it published, and the realities of the modern UK publishing world."
