Course Content

Characterisation

Building your characters and making them believable is essential to your story. Your tutor will help you create a character profile which will include every aspect of their personality including looks, dress sense, nuances, character defects, likes and dislikes, emotional traits and habits etc. You will build a comprehensive list, and learn why this is relevant.

Show Not Tell

This is one of the hardest things to achieve in a story, yet it is vital to get the right balance, in order to enthral the reader and produce intriguing prose. Your tutor will explain the importance of creating a scene with the right amount of action and detail. This is essential to your writing.

Dialogue

Dialogue is used, amongst other things, to move the story forward and show us more about how your characters behave and give the reader an insight into their personality. Your tutor will help you look at how to work this into your prose.
