The Shape of a Novel: A Masterclass with Jacob Ross
4th April 2020 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Award-winning author, Jacob Ross is widely regarded as one of the UK’s most exceptional creative-writing teachers and we are delighted to welcome him to New Writing South for an exclusive masterclass on novel-writing. Even the most experienced writers can sometimes stumble when approaching longform fiction, especially when it comes to structuring a novel, so the heart of the story powerfully shines through. What can we do as writers to make sure our narratives hold their shape and become publication-ready? In this masterclass, Jacob will guide us through the basic narrative principles as they apply to the development of the novel, examining the dramatic under-structure that upholds a successful work of fiction, and in doing so enable us to discover the right shape of novel for the narrative we want to create. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to learn direct from a master of the craft right here on the doorstep.
A limited number of bursary places are available for this workshop for writers who cannot afford the full price. Please email email@example.com for details.
