Structured Editing for Beginners

Creative Writing

Sold Out

Would you like to improve your story structure and editing skills, but don't know where to start?

This one-day free workshop introduces beginner writers to structured, collaborative editing techniques. You'll work in small teams with a friendly facilitator to ask "what if" questions that can help free your imagination and expand your stories in new directions. You'll learn to systematically identify opportunities for creative improvement in a supportive, collaborative environment. 

 Targeted at new writers without formal educational experience in creative writing, you must have at least one completed short story in draft form, which will be workshopped during this course.

Event in Partnership with QUB and University of Hertfordshire
