Course overview

Course overview

Inside every person there is at least one great book waiting to be liberated – maybe the next best-selling thriller, a factual book about some subject you’re passionate about or a biography of someone you admire. The surest way to liberate these ideas and turn them into reality is to take the advice of a successful writer who is trained to share their skills with you, like internationally acclaimed author and qualified trainer Richard Davis.

This two-day program will equip you with the knowledge and skills you need to get started on your writing career.

Day One covers the creative processes – how to unlock your imagination, how to develop plots and characters, how to carry out research, how to write simple expressive language, and how to edit and polish your writing.

Day Two offers practical advice on how to get your writing published – how to present manuscripts, how to work with agents, editors, publishers etc. and how to build on and celebrate your success.

Testimonials:

“Enjoyed the comradery between participants” - Karen

“Really useful course, especially how the publishing process works” - Joanna
