Events for Sue Moorcroft
Creative Writing Course - Start-up Writing Class

Event 900 Sunday 5 March, 9.30am-12.30pm Al Waha, InterContinental

Authors: Sue Moorcroft
Have you always wanted to write but don’t quite know where to start? Perhaps you already have the material but don’t know it! Join experienced tutor Sue Moorcroft, who can give you the tools to create your characters, build a sense of place and take that germ of an idea and craft it into the beginnings of your novel.

Liz Fenwick, who is the author of several novels and has been a Festival author in the past, has this to say about Sue:

'Sue is a lively, engaged and experienced teacher. She brings her own experience as an award winning novelist to her practical and inspiring courses. Before I was published I was lucky enough to attend one of her classes of characterisation. My novel Under A Cornish Sky was born from the exercise we did that day. Since then at every opportunity I get I jump at the chance to attend anything Sue is teaching.'

Highlights of the three days include being part of a small group (maximum 15) with Sue 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.

Secret Lives and Summer Love: Contemporary Women’s Fiction

Event 35 Friday 3 March, 4.30pm-5.30pm Al Ras 2, InterContinental

Contemporary women’s fiction confronts serious issues with humour, compassion, and just the right amount of romance. Our panel discusses how to create a satisfying, original story and engaging characters while dealing with social problems relevant to women today.

April Hardy’s Sitting Pretty begins with a failed marriage and abrupt homelessness before taking a detour into the rich comic terrain of petsitting for the wealthy; new novel Kind Hearts & Coriander centres on a bereaved woman’s plan to find out the truth about her father by infiltrating his quirky hotel, only to find friendship and possible romance among the staff.

Nadiya Hussain’s The Secret Lives of the Amir Sisters is a family saga featuring four sisters from the only Muslim family in a quaint British village. Each sister is already struggling with her own secret, but family tragedy forces them to pull together.

Sue Moorcroft’s award-wining novels – from All That Mullarkey, which begins with the literal writing on the wall for a doomed marriage, to The Christmas Promise, whose heroine makes a life-changing promise without even realising it – are famous for balancing authentic struggle with reassuring warmth. Her new book Just for the Holidays will be published in May.

Language: English, with simultaneous Arabic translation
