Autumn 2021 Writing Courses with Sophie Draper and Roz Watkins
Wed 15 Sep 2021 to Mon 29 Nov 2021
Join successful commercial authors Sophie Draper and Roz Watkins for two online courses this autumn: ' Gripping Fiction' and 'Submitting to Agents'. Courses can be booked separately or together.

Gripping Fiction
15th September to 20th October 2021 (Wednesdays, 7 - 8.30pm, live online), £235

Join myself and Roz for six weeks packed with secrets and surprising insights from two friendly and helpful commercial authors published by Big Five publishers.

Roz and I first met on a similar writer's course in Derby. It was a chance to learn and share our writing efforts and we both found it very motivating. We hope this online teaching experience will also help your writing ambitions and allow you to get to know a small group of like-minded writers just like we did.

Both of us went on to publish with HarperCollins, Roz writing her acclaimed Meg Dalton crime detective series (The Devil's Dice, short-listed for the CWA Debut Dagger Award, Dead Man's Daughter and Cut To The Bone), myself winning the Bath Novel Award 2017 with Cuckoo and then writing Magpie. Roz and I are experienced workshop leaders and we'd love to share some of what we've learned, encourage new writers and offer a practical insight into the business of writing.

Submitting to Agents
8th to 29th November 2021 (Mondays, 7 - 8.30pm, live online), £175

The aim is to take you through the practicalities of writing the different segments of the submission package each week - so be prepared to do some homework, and by the end of the course, you should have a full draft of your submission package!
