19th May: Write It!
This course is all about getting the words on the page, before you move on to editing and selling the book. Here we'll look at all the key components of writing your story: motivation; sources of inspiration; creating character, plot and pace; using point of view, voice, dialogue and setting.
20th May: Edit It!
26th May: Publish It!
In this course, we'll explore the various routes to publication, whether mainstream or independent, print or electronic. We'll discuss how the publishing process works, how to approach agents and publishers, how you can go it alone - while at the same time producing a novel which looks professional and eye-catching.
27th May: Market It!

The novel is inspired by Dickens' Bleak House and she'll describe how she went about creating a truly powerful atmosphere for her Victorian murder mystery.
