Fully booked!

The best novels have memorable characters – who could forget Mr Darcy, Tess of the D’Urbervilles, or even Patrick Bateman? Ray Bradbury once said, ‘Plot is no more than footprints left in the snow after your characters have run by on their way to incredible destinations.’

Why is character so important in novels, and how do we go about writing great characters? What is the relationship between character and plot? In this day workshop for aspiring and emerging fiction writers, Sunday Times Top Ten Bestselling author Rachel Hore will help you to explore these issues through creative writing exercises and discussion to help you start on or develop your novel.

Limited availability – this workshop will have a maximum of 15 participants to ensure an intimate learning environment.
