Description: Suitable for beginners or writers looking to reignite their work, this one day ‘Get Your Descriptions Sparkling’ creative writing specialty workshop will focus on how to make your descriptions of character, locations and action not only sparkle, but also contain the necessary attributes to intrigue, thrill, delight and hook your reader, in the process compelling them to keep on turning the pages you have so painstakingly constructed.

We want our readers to love and enjoy our work, and whilst being a joy to read and lose ourselves in, descriptions are also a key vehicle in moving the narrative forward and imparting maximum enjoyment to the plot.

In a warm, fun and inspiring environment, you will learn top tips and techniques used my many top authors to add vivacity, immediacy; to let our imaginations run free whilst also layering-in backstory and emotion, all of which will bond the reader to the character and story, thus heightening the reader’s experience to the max.

From the get-go, you will begin to produce work within a structure proven to enhance and drive your creativity forward, even sharing it with your fellow students (don’t worry - you don’t have to) to build your confidence, critiquing skills and the necessary thick-skin all writers must have.

You will leave the workshop fired-up and inspired to continue your work, armed with a rock solid structure and ‘menu’ of those necessary ingredients required to create a compelling, unputdownable novel.

And again, should you wish to take your learning further and enrol on a full six week ‘Get That Novel Started’ course, then the £15 investment for this one day workshop is fully redeemable against any ‘Get That Novel Started’ creative writing course commencing in the new year.

(Again, please note: enrollment must be via the website, as I can’t afford to offset Eventbrite’s fees as well 😊)
