If you live, or are within travelling distance of central London, then why not sashay on down to Victoria Library on Friday, 21st September where I'll be running a writing workshop. The course runs between 5.30 - 6.45 and you can find details here
I'll be covering everything you need to know about writing romance - but the "rules" are the same for writing any kind of fiction. We'll be discovering what makes your characters leap off the page and what makes the reader care what happens to them. We'll learn about the importance of narrative and what keeps dialogue fresh and real.
Oh, and we'll be having a laugh - that, I promise.
And while you're in the vicinity - you could do no better than having a stroll around the glorious St. James's Park which is the oldest park in London and is surrounded by three palaces.
I'm also running a course in Mayfair - posh! - on 25th September and I'll let you have details of that within the next couple of days.
