Creative Writing evening course
Novella Fever with Kiare Ladner

Wednesday evenings 6.45pm-9.15pm; Jan 29, Feb 5, 12, (half term), 26, March 4, 11; cost £99; venue Writing Room

If the short story is like a photograph and the novel is like a film, the novella is like a fever.

In six weeks, we will aim to start (or finish) drafting a novella. What you work on may be only slightly longer than a short story or slightly shorter than a novel. You may have an idea to explore, or a short story that’s growing, or something resembling a novel in progress. On the course, we will look at what gives this particular form its power. We will think about the value of the instinctive in our writing. We will discuss the general shape a story of this length this may take. In intensive weekly sessions we will workshop both writing and story ideas. All levels welcome.

And now for something completely different.
