Creative Writing Course - Writing and Improving Your Novel Class

902 Sunday 5 March, 9.30am-12.30pm Al Rimal, InterContinental

Authors: Patrick Gale
Are you already working on your novel? Are you teetering on the brink of starting? Why not join us at the biggest Festival of Literature in the Middle East, which will provide the creative backdrop to let you hone your writing skills in the company of world-class writers? Patrick Gale, award-winning writer and experienced tutor, will be on hand to look at all aspects of bringing your writing to life, including how you build your characters, create a sense of place, and choose your point of view, as well as the crafts of dialogue, structure and editing.

This course is for writers who have already started their journey and will require a submission of some of your writing. Once you sign up, Patrick will let you know exactly what he is looking for. He will bring out the best of your creativity; this course will see you creating new pieces of work that will form the basis for discussion in the group. After three days, including a final Q & A session to address any specific concerns, you should be able to go back to your novel with renewed enthusiasm and energy.

Highlights of the three days include being part of a small group (maximum 15) with Patrick as the tutor. There will be time for quiet writing, as well as the chance to hear from editors, agents and publishers at organized talks as well as in more informal social settings.

No trip to Dubai would be complete without a trip to the desert, and you will have the chance to join us for an evening on the dunes under the stars, enjoying dinner in the company of some of our Festival authors.

The fee includes the writing workshops, talks, lunch and dinner, including the trip to the desert.
