Dette kommer dere til å gjøre

Whether you want help with the start of your novel, have a short story that needs fine tuning or this is the first class in creative writing you have taken, Bridget and I can help improve your skills in a supportive, confidence-boosting workshop. The 3.5 hour session will take place in my home, in a quiet street very close to the centre of Brighton. You and a small group of other guests will be welcomed into my pretty patio garden, weather permitting, or relaxing living space. Lunch prepared by my chef husband is included and we'll cover as many of the following topics as time allows: * Character creation - making characters memorable and believable, avoiding stereotypes and being original * First and third person storytelling - exploring the choices you have * Plotting - where to start, how to stop a flabby middle section, endings * Dialogue - how to make conversation sound natural and drive your narrative Plus three subjects rarely covered in writing courses: * Feedback - how to survive critical comments * Editing - a practical exercise that will reveal your inner editor * Up-to-date insights on the publishing industry Let us know ahead if any of these are especially important to you. Are you working on a story right now? Send through the first 1000 words at least 24 hours ahead and one of us will read it and chat about it 1-to-1 briefly at the end of the workshop.

Sarah

I'm Sarah Rayner, the author of five novels including the international bestseller, One Moment, One Morning, which is set in Brighton, where I live and work. In 2014 I published Making Friends with Anxiety which grew into a non-fiction series with a very substantial on-line following. I have sold over 500,000 books worldwide, but my first foray into fiction was writing short stories for women's magazines. My co-host is Bridget Whelan, whose career was kick-started when she won $4000 in an international story competition. She has an MA in Creative and Life Writing from Goldsmiths College and lectures in the subject. Should either one of us be unable to attend, another bestselling author will step in. My husband, Tom, a chef, will provide home-cooked food.

Her skal du være

The writing workshop will be held our charming period home in central Brighton, which is 8 minutes walk from the station. If it's warm enough we will sit in our secluded south-facing patio; if not we will be indoors in our cosy living room with its fire and relaxing seating. Tom and I have been Airbnb hosts for three years and in that time have hosted over 200 guests. We are delighted to be opening our doors to would-be writers too.

Flere tips

We will start at the time listed, sharp. If you want to arrive a few minutes early to settle, that's fine. Please note that there are a few steps up to the table in the patio garden. If wheelchair users wish to attend we can move down to the side return of the garden - just let us know.
