Faber Academy: Finish Your Draft with Natasha Bell
Mon 27 Mar 2023 to Sun 24 Dec 2023
Develop the tools, techniques and motivation to complete your draft within nine months.

This is a flexible but intensive course for the advanced writer, designed to help you hone your editorial eye and get to the end. Within a small, supportive community of fellow writers, you will be pushed to analyse the robustness and effectiveness of your structure, style and other narrative choices, and to stay on track with your word-count.

You can work at your own pace through the monthly lessons and exercises, while always keeping in touch through private class forums, optional monthly video-call sessions and check-ins with your tutor.

Submit up to 5,000 words every month for feedback and make use of regular self-assessment and reflection opportunities to develop a practice that will carry you through to your next book and the one after that.

Natasha (she/her) is a cross-genre author and researcher. She's published two novels, His Perfect Wife and This Nowhere Place, with Penguin and a memoir with HarperCollins. She holds an MA in Creative and Life Writing from Goldsmiths, where she's currently working on a practice-led PhD in autofiction.
