Mslexia Novel School
Our first ever virtual writing course is running from 11-15 July 2022, and there are only 48 places available.
Mslexia Novel School is for writers embarking on a new novel or rethinking a work-in-progress. Four leading writer-tutors will each focus on a single aspect of the novel writing craft, creating a varied week of high-quality workshops.
For our inaugural Mslexia Novel School, our four core craft tutors are:
- Lesley Glaister on creating a character
- Jane Rogers on pace, page-turning and plot
- Leone Ross on imaginative world building
- Margaret Wilkinson on voice and point of view
You can also expect:
- small-group teaching
- experienced tutors
- private writing time
- psychological support
- motivational coaching
- networking socials
Craft is crucial. But this will be a week that will nurture the whole writer.
That’s why, in addition to our core Novel School material, we’re also including motivation and goal-setting workshops led by experienced writing coach Bec Evans, drop-in surgeries with counsellor Hilary Jenkins for anyone who’s feeling a bit lost, and informal socials led by our course MC Rosie Garland – novelist, poet and performer extraordinaire – who will introduce you to fellow writers on the course.
We know individual attention is all-important, so our novel workshop groups will be limited to 12 people – which means your tutors will have time to get to know you and your writing. The core teaching takes place from 10am-4pm, but groups will come together for the coaching workshops and socials – to form a community of likeminded writers who will become your friends for life.
