CONTEMPORARY WOMEN'S WRITING FESTIVAL

Booking is closed for this event.

Everyone knows that the most important part of writing well is re-writing, but how do you do that? This practical workshop, led by Emma Darwin, will think about structure and scene-building, then close in stage by stage to think about characterisation, voice, and finally the close-up focus that makes every word count. Participants will develop a clearer idea of how to tackle that crucial second draft, and a bagful of tools to work with.
Emma Darwin’s debut The Mathematics of Love is probably the only novel nominated for both Commonwealth Writers’ Best First Book, and RNA Novel of the Year awards. Her second, A Secret Alchemy, was a Sunday Times Bestseller, and her first non-fiction book was Get Started in Writing Historical Fiction. Her memoir, This is Not a Book About Charles Darwin, will be published in February 2019. She has taught creative writing in many places including the Open University, and her blog This Itch of Writing is used by courses and editors around the world.
