If you have an idea for a novel, this inspiring class will stop you procrastinating and help you to dive into writing. Using practical exercises, you’ll dream up scenes, play with images and flesh out characters. Led by Kathryn Heyman you’ll also learn the essentials of structure and storytelling, as well as how to boost productivity and find real joy in your writing. At the end of the day, you'll know how to get that story written.

On receipt of booking, we will ask you to confirm any special requirements, including access needs. While not all rooms in Science House are fully accessible, we are committed to ensuring that all participants can attend all workshops.

With thanks to NYU Sydney.
