Beginning Your Novel with Megan Taylor

At Waterstones


6-week course, Saturdays 1-3pm.

Using published examples and playful exercises, this series of workshops will offer participants a deeper understanding of crucial elements in novel writing, such as character, setting, point of view and structure. During this course we’ll start putting these techniques into practice, helping you write your novel with confidence. You will also develop your feedback skills which will give you a basis for editing your own work.

As well as putting these techniques into practice, you will also gain skills on writing independently and keeping going, which will encourage you to embark on your novels with enthusiasm and confidence.
