Short Course: Writing Place: Telling Stories of Home and Landscape with George Eliot

4th November 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


How can our writing communicate a sense of home and belonging or bring to life a place that readers have never seen? This short course will offer writers based in the Midlands the opportunity to craft their skills in evoking settings – whether imagined, remembered, or the everyday.

The course draws on the radical example of the nineteenth-century writer, George Eliot (Mary Anne Evans), born two hundred years ago in North Warwickshire, to explore what it means to write in or about the Midlands now.

Works by course participants may be featured as part of the George Eliot bicentenary celebrations in 2019, with follow-on opportunities for publication.

This course is designed for emerging writers who are looking to develop their work further.
