A run-through of current writing styles in fiction, exploring the technical tools that will help define your own style and approach to writing. Writing is a learned skill and requires a good deal of practice. Being aware of what you are trying to achieve, and what to avoid if you want to attract readers, is very helpful. Over six weeks we will define the core ingredients that go into good writing and examine excerpts from established writers today to show how these ingredients work on the page. Then, if you are inspired to do so, you can try your own hand at these same techniques.
