Whether you’re new to creative writing or a seasoned author, this workshop focuses on exploring and practising (via writing exercises) the key ingredients necessary to bring together to write a full, rich and compelling story, to make your writing sparkle and to deliver the very best reader experience possible.

You don’t need to come with an idea for a story to participate, as Dominic can supply prompts, numerous scenarios to get you creating. This workshop develops that idea until you have created your own story via a solid, definable structure featuring a protagonist, a location, a set-up, a plot twist and an ending.

With comprehensive accompanying notes, this workshop makes for a wonderfully creative, insightful and inspiring day that will take your writing to the next level.

The Morning Session – 10am-1pm:

  • Structure
  • Character
  • Location
  • Dramatic event
  • Lunchbreak – 1-2pm approx. (timings are flexible.)

 

The Afternoon Session – 2-5pm:

  • Reaction to dramatic event
  • Build-up toward the conclusion
  • Plotting, plot twists, pace & the best reader experience possible
  • Strong, dramatic, fulfilling conclusion

This workshop aims to be a thoroughly interactive and great fun day of learning. At the end of it, you will have written from scratch, or completed, a story.

Testimonials

Such an exciting day which really kickstarted my writing. And so much fun!

Sarah, Oxford

I’m a beginner, so the best part for me was coming away with a check-list reminder of what I should include: structure, plot, drama, narrative, dialogue, descriptions etc. Highly recommend this, and Dominic’s enthusiasm is infectious.

Zelda, Chislehurst

I love the film-like pre-production work we did as a group, building our characters and plots as we went, which sparked wonderful backstories. Thank you so much, Dominic.

Deepika, Wandsworth
