Write That Novel

August 7th - August 9th 2017

A two day course in Novel Writing with Mark Oldfield, acclaimed author of The Sentinel and CWA Steel Dagger Award nominee.

About the course

'Write that Novel!' is for anyone wanting to write quality fiction.

The course leader, Dr Mark Oldfield had his first manuscript accepted by an agent at his first attempt and the published work – The Sentinel - went on to be shortlisted for a CWA Steel Dagger Award.

Over the two days of the course he will teach you the secrets of his success.

He will outline a variety of techniques and approaches that will help you develop storylines, write synopses and edit your work for submission to agents and publishers.

You'll study ways of building suspense and tension, and find out how to create credible characters and write realistic dialogue.

About the venue

The Bull at Brenchley is a converted pub set in the heart of a beautiful Tudor village in Kent. It is not a hotel. It provides luxury self-catering accommodation for groups of up to 16 people.

On our midweek courses however, we will provide all the catering for you. All you have to do is concentrate on writing that novel.

It's a relaxed and informal setting that you’ll be sharing with a small number of like-minded fellow writers. Whether you choose to work in the sumptuous comfort of the lounge, in front of the log fire in the snug, the calming atmosphere of the basement media room, or outside in the south-facing courtyard garden, The Bull at Brenchley is the perfect place to get inspired and to hone your craft.
