Do I need to attend every workshop?
Whilst you are able to drop in to individual workshops without signing up to all 10 weeks, we recommend the full course in order to benefit from the guidance and networking opportunities. It's also cheaper to attend all ten!
Are they suitable for non-fiction writers?
These particular workshops are best suited to fiction writers, however the session on July 19th will be relevant for writers of both.
