Saturday 12th October 2019: our Revising Your Novel Workshop will help you sort your rough draft and turn it into a finished novel. We'll focus on structure and character. The workshop is open to anyone who wants to revise a novel. That might be because you've completed your rough draft, or equally because you've got stuck partway through and need help :) Please send your synopsis to the tutor beforehand. Visit 'Novel Writing' on our website, or click the link above. This is a 1-Day Workshop, from 10.00am-4.00pm. Cost: £90.

Tutor: Sophie Cooke
