While exploring in depth such key techniques of fiction as plotting, narrative voice, characterisation and background research, each module is also designed to be flexible and to allow you to bring your own writing interests and projects to the assignments, extending the boundaries of your current practice through self-reflection, research, analysis, and creative exploration.

This module explores key writing techniques such as narrative, setting and characterisation, with reference to literary examples and the different methods used by writers in the creative process. This is an opportunity for you to explore the scenes and characters of your planned novel or develop a variety of ideas and approaches if you have not decided on the content of your story.

“Daren has been a brilliant mentor and has provided invaluable help and insight. He has given me advice in relation to all aspects of the book, from plotting and structure, to fine linguistic details. I’m not sure I could have finished it without him. I am pleased to say that I now have an agent .”
Eve Harris, UK, longlisted for the Booker Prize

A) Detailed work on prose style . Daren will give you an intensive prose tutorial, using a chunk of your own prose as an example. (It’s critical to make sure that you get a pair of well-fitting boots, before you start to take a hike, after all.)

B) Structural writing work . Daren will take you from a single line synopsis of your work through to a fully worked out plan for the novel, every step of which will be powerfully story-driven.
