Creative Non Fiction short course with Sian Prior

Sian Prior

Event Date: 28 March 2023 to 2 May 2023
Author / Presenters: Dr Sian Prior

We are living in the age of ‘reality hunger’. Readers have an insatiable appetite for well-crafted true stories. This six week course will introduce you to some of the essential skills required to write publishable works of creative non fiction. From essays to memoirs and autobiographies, from personal columns to self-help books, the ingredients remain the same: well-planned and focussed research, a clear and convincing voice, and an ability to ‘show’ rather than ‘tell’ your readers what you want them to know. You also will learn how to structure and write a persuasive publishing proposal.The course is taught by Dr Sian Prior, author of 'Shy: a memoir' and 'Childless: a story of freedom and longing' and involves two contact hours (online via Zoom) per week and some homework writing and reading tasks. You will also receive private individual feedback on some of your work. All welcome.
