Faber Academy: Advanced Fiction workshop with Gillian Slovo
Wed 14 Apr 2021 to Wed 27 Oct 2021
Led by acclaimed author Gillian Slovo, this six-month online course is there to help you get your head down and get to the end of your draft.

With a tight-knit group of nine fellow writers, you'll get regular, rigorous feedback as you write, helping you answer those tricky early draft questions: ‘Does this work?’; ‘How do I know what to keep and what to discard?’; ‘How should I change this to make it even better?’

A natural continuation for graduates of Writing a Novel, or a great support group for writers who need to really get their head down and get to the end, this fortnightly, six-month course is all about reaching your goal.

Gillian Slovo is a hugely experienced tutor and acclaimed writer of thirteen novels, a celebrated memoir and several plays.

The sessions will take place every two weeks on Wednesday evenings between 18:30 and 21:00, with each participant bringing work once a month, with the intervening month’s writing/editing time structured by materials made available on Faber Academy’s online classroom.

The application deadline for this course is midnight on Sunday 4 April 2021.

Dates: 14 April – 27 October 2021
Location: Online
Cost: £1,450
