KYD Writers Workshop is delighted to launch two new workshops online: the popular Character & Plot, hosted by Hannah Kent and Rebecca Starford, and Writing Creative Non-Fiction Essays, with award-winning author Sophie Cunningham. These workshops are suitable for writers of all levels.

Writing Character & Plot with Hannah Kent and Rebecca Starford

Characters are the beating heart of all stories, but what makes some characters more compelling than others? How do you create a unique voice for your narrator or protagonist? And how exactly do character and plot intersect?

Character & Plot will equip you with a variety of strategies that can be used to create well-developed, complex characters, as well as teach you techniques and approaches to crafting compelling, engaging and original storylines.

Writing Creative Non-Fiction Essays with Sophie Cunningham

All non-fiction is creative — a writer must isolate particular details from a plethora of detail, and elucidate broad and complex subjects. But how can we find an emotional connection to the facts, for both the writer and the reader?

This workshop aims to help you communicate stories in a discursive and engaged way. Through a series of exercises, you’ll learn about form, structure and voice in creative non-fiction, all from an award-winning writer and publisher.

Members save $50 on the price of these two workshops until 30 November. For your coupon code please check your email or email us at [email protected].
