Novel Writing for Beginners


Join Belfast-based novelist and short story writer Jan Carson for a two-hour masterclass in writing your first novel.

Covering structure, pacing, voice and character development, the workshop is aimed at emerging prose writers who are beginning their first long-form project.

Please come with a rough idea of what your novel will be about, a notebook and a pen.
