Topics covered will include:
(1) Introduction – In this first module, we’ll look at how to find ideas, the importance of observation and the power of memory. We’ll also look at the difference between showing and telling, establishing a writing routine and the importance of reading.
(2) Characterisation – Characters are often the reason we read in the first place and we need someone to identify with. In this module we’ll examine what makes successful characters in fiction.
(3) Point of View and Setting. Every piece of writing comes from a particular point of view and one of the most important things you must decide upon is that of person. We’ll also look at setting, how to paint a picture for the reader and the relationship between settings and character.
(4) Plot. Whatever you’re writing, there will be a plot – something must happen to your characters. We will look at several plot types and how to generate ideas.
(5) Voice and Dialogue, Endings. In this module we will look at voice and dialogue and provide some tips and suggestions as to how to write effective dialogue. We’ll also look at how to end your story and some do’s and don’t’s!
(6) Revision and Getting Published. We will look at how to revise and improve your writing and how to get your work into print.
