Writing Workshop: Being There - Setting and Voice
- Date October 30, 2018
- Time 10:30a.m. - 3:30p.m.
- Suitable for Everyone
Have you ever related a story you heard and loved and had it fall flat because whatever endeared you in the first place is lost in the retelling. You say, ‘I wish you’d been there.’ That’s what this workshop is all about.
How do you set a story in such a way that the reader feels as if he is actually there? How can you recreate the event so that it seems realistic and not just an account? We will look at how you use the senses in your writing and which ones you need to avoid!
Workshop cost £45 per person (£35 per person for Brooklands Trust Members)
Book 3 workshops or more for a 5% discount.
Places are strictly limited on a first come, first served basis.
