Saturday 29 October 10am – 12.30pm Wantage Library Ages 18+ £12 Ever thought of writing a novel? Have you a great idea but never get round to writing it? Then join author Debrah Martin, former member of our committee and Chair of the 2014 Festival, in a short workshop designed to help aspiring authors take that first step.
The workshop will help you find and develop and idea, establish the voice you are going to write in , plot an intriguing, nail-biting story and get your first chapter underway.
Debbie is a 10 times published author – some traditional and some self-published. She won an award for “Patchwork Man” and also teaches creative writing including day-long workshops at Ardington School of Crafts . Her most recent book, “Write, Publish, Promote” has recently been added to the recommended reading list for the MA in Creative Writing at Bournemouth Arts University. A self-acknowledged people watcher, Debbie confesses that “Whatever I’m doing and whoever I’m with, a little part of me is watching and secretly wondering – what did that mean? Why did they do that? What might happen next? It was inevitable I would eventually put all those observations together into stories; but what happened next, and why, is
never quite what you expect – as in real life, of course.”
