New Writing North: Write Your Novel with Yvonne Battle-Felton
Thu 9 Sep 2021 to Thu 28 Oct 2021
Write Your Novel is a new 8-part podcast series aimed at helping you, the writer, develop your novel draft. Created by novelist Yvonne Battle-Felton, the series features award-winning writers reading from their books and conversations with the authors around an element of craft.

Each episode ends with a writing exercise focusing on the technique the writer discussed. The exercises encourage you to write, re-write, and read.

You will also be able to participate in our new Discord community, to connect with other writers and discuss how your writing is going, what techniques you’ve tried, what you’ve learned about yourself, the work you’re writing, or your own writing practice.

The first episode of the podcast will be released on 9 September.
