Workshop description: In the warm, fun and inspiring environment of Crystal Palace Park, this one day creative writing workshop focuses on the art and joy of character and location descriptions, exploring the vital ingredients we can sprinkle into our prose to really connect the reader and fire their imagination, making them feel they are in the scene themselves.

Crystal Palace Park is a joyous environment, packed with all manner of historical artifacts and corners of natural beauty, making it the perfect place to get creative and connect with the elements that will seriously enhance our work.

The morning (10am-1pm) will focus on character descriptions, with the afternoon (2-5pm) being dedicated to location descriptions.

We will also put into practice our learning via writing and developing our stories ‘on the go’, so to speak.

The goal: a thoroughly interactive and great fun day through which you will learn so much. And there’s nothing like being in the company of fellow creatives to really develop our work.

Attendees of this workshop will be most welcome to enrol on the full six-week ‘Get That Novel Started’ or ‘Keep That Momentum Going’ creative writing courses, as detailed on our courses page.
