Friday nights, starting 4th September

£60/£45 for low income for four classes: 7 – 8.30 p.m. Small group with limited numbers. 

In this four week course I draw on my experience as an author of ten novels, as well as a Masters Graduate in Creative Writing & Associate Fellow of Higher Education. Together we delve into the intoxicating world of fiction writing, and access skills which enable us to release deeper meaning in our stories, and authentic emotional impact for our readers.

Each class is 90 minutes long, and takes the form of a workshop with practical exercises, and opportunities to share with feedback.

The four weeks focus on different aspects of writing fiction: Ideas & beginnings; Storyline & structure; Characterisation; Settings & World Building.

Numbers are limited. Please book your space by emailing me directly on: scottishwriters2017@gmail.com

TESTIMONIALS

‘Noelle has a way of bringing out imagination in everyone, which results in stellar writing.’ (Elizabeth)

‘I learned concrete techniques I could implement straight away, got loads of invigorating encouragement, and have been busy writing ever since.’ (Hilde)

‘If you have time and chance to do a course with Noelle, don’t hesitate!’ (Nina)

‘Noelle’s experience, knowledge and know-how leaves you roaring to write.’ (Ila)

‘Such an enriching experience with a great bunch of women.’ (Lynne)

“My experience with Noelle, both working with her and attending her courses, is that she is a devoted and charismatic teacher. She connects with participants in a very special way so that the creative work is focused. Noelle has built very structured yet dynamic and enriching courses. The fact that she guides you step-by-step make her courses particularly attractive. The result is that you get to experience what she is teaching rather than hear about it. Creative blocks and fear of writing melt away and creativity kicks in. By taking one of Noelle’s writing courses, I believe you get a deeper understanding of what the craft of writing is and what your role should be in wanting to master it.”
