Write Here… in Edinburgh
Mon 13 May 2019 to Mon 8 Jul 2019
Write Here… in Edinburgh is a seven-week creative writing course for those in Scotland who want to write – or who are already writing – a novel. Taught by acclaimed author and experienced tutor Kaite Welsh, the course will feature expert tuition, one-to-one tutorials, weekly workshops and a visit from literary agent Jenny Brown.

What to expect from Write Here… in Edinburgh

- Weekly writing workshops, led by author and tutor Kaite Welsh, focusing on 3,000-word sections of students’ novels-in-progress.

- One 20-minute, one-to-one tutorial with Kaite Welsh. Students will be asked to submit 3,000 words from their novel directly to the tutor, along with any questions about the piece and their novel in general, and these will be discussed in the meeting.

- Weekly teaching sessions on topics essential to the writing of a novel – which will sometimes include writing exercises and homework.

- A two-hour Q&A session with Write Here… director Rufus Purdy and literary agent Jenny Brown of Edinburgh’s Jenny Brown Associates, to help students get more of an insight into the publishing industry.

Limited to 15 students.

The course will take place on Monday evenings between 13 May and 8 July 2019.

Booking deadline: 05 May 2019 at 23:55
