Many writers have brilliant story ideas but don’t know where to begin. In this online workshop with bestselling author JP Pomare, you’ll learn different approaches to building a story and crafting narrative tension in fiction.

This course is constructed in a way to help develop early novel ideas by finding and pursuing potential narrative avenues, and building out a convincing story world replete with strong characters and a setting that draws readers in. We will look closely at the individual elements of fiction with a view of how these interact with plot, and establish techniques for building and maintaining tension throughout an entire novel.

You’ll undertake a variety of exercises to help you move from the initial big idea toward a developed draft full of twists that keep readers turning the pages.

This course involves submitting short writing exercises, and giving and receiving peer feedback. Participants will receive limited tutor feedback.
