You can write – but how do you make your words come alive on the page? In this creative workshop, you will learn how you can use elements such as character, dialogue, setting, tense, voice, language and emotion to paint pictures in your readers’ minds, with a focus on mastering the subtle art of showing not telling – an essential skill that’s guaranteed to make your work stand out to agents and publishers.
