In which the Author gives another writing class…
The next in the series of writing classes here in Gascony will be on Sunday 7th September, in Nogaro (Gers).
The topics of the day will be ‘Dialogue’ and ‘Voice / Style’ – both crunch issues for many authors.
The full-day writing class is suitable for authors of all kinds of fiction.
The fee is €23. The venue is wheelchair accessible and there is free parking nearby.
Everyone welcome. And if you have writerly friends, don’t bother to share the news with them (wait, that’s not quite right…).
In which the Author gives a creative writing class…
The third in the ongoing monthly series of creative writing classes here in SW France will take place on Saturday
24 May, at Nogaro in the département of the Gers.
The full-day course will be on the subject of ‘writing the plot’ and is aimed at all writers and novelists, whether
you’re just starting out or have almost finished your novel.
We have people coming from the neighbouring départements of the Landes and Haute-Garonne, as well as from
various other parts of the Gers/Gascony. There are still a few places available.
The details: 10am-4pm with a break for lunch. The fee is €20. To book or to enquire further send me a message
via the electric internet on firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’ve just finished a vampire novel, where you can solve all kinds of plot problems with a bit of biting and
bloodsucking: I’m conscious, however, that this may not entirely work for writers of chicklit or police procedurals,
so I’ll have to rein myself in. Oh well.
In which the Author gives a writing class in SW France…
Calling all hopeful novelists living within a reasonable distance of the Gers, SW France (so that means you,
Landes, Haute-Garonne, Lot-et-Garonne and Haute-Pyrénées). On Saturday 12th April I’ve giving another full-day writing class. The previous class was a blast – thanks to all those who came – and by popular demand the next
class will focus on writing fiction, specifically, creating memorable characters.
We’ll be looking at character physique, names, motivation, personality and what I like to call character
archaeology – the effect of the past on the present.
All are welcome, no matter your level or experience of writing fiction.
The class will be in Nogaro, Gers, from 10am-4pm. Cost is only €20. Many of the students from the previous class have already signed up.
