Reading As A Writer - Residential Weekend
Canterbury Christ Church University
Date: 2014 - Friday March 21st. 3.00 pm to Sunday March 23rd. 3.00 pm
Tutor: Tricia Wastvedt
Venue: Howfield Manor, Kent.
For centuries, painters, musicians, dancers, sculptors, have studied the work of others to learn technique and for inspiration. So how do writers learn from other writers? What is it exactly that great writers do to make their work vivid and satisfying, when yours so often seems to just miss the mark?
In this weekend, we’ll study extracts from published novels, but there’ll be plenty of time for writing too; the aim is to develop your own work, to take it to another level and to experiment with techniques learned from reading. You’ll come away with fresh ideas for your own stories and practical ways to make your work shine.
This weekend is suitable for those with some experience; writers who have completed a few short stories or who might be working on a longer project.
