Course Description

All prose writing - whether short story or novel - needs a strong narrative drive. It's the engine of your story which grabs the reader and keeps them riveted. Without it, stories feel a little flat. So how do you create a strong narrative drive? How do you sustain it throughout your story? In a day of writing and discussion, we'll explore the arts of suspense, mystery and dramatic irony. We'll look at published examples and practise key techniques with writing exercises, all designed to improve your skill at storytelling.
