Cape Town workshops – September 2008

Cape Town creative writing workshopsI’m going to be in Cape Town in September and will be speaking at a creative writing and publishing workshop, in collaboration with award-winning author Gillian D’Achada. I’ve just finished editing her novel Sharkey’s Son, which has won the prestigious Sanlam Award, and I’ll be over in South Africa for the book’s launch.

So if you’re going to be in Cape Town in September, why not come along to one or both of the sessions:

Session 1

Releasing your creativity:
Getting those ideas from the brain to the page. A two-hour workshop where you can explore what’s already in you and how best to get it out.

Plus – a bonus half hour on the South African and UK publishing markets.

Session 2

Bringing your writing to life:
How to use all your senses, ‘show not tell’ and banish passive writing for ever. A two-hour workshop that will give you the tools to develop your writing into something worth publishing.

Plus – a bonus half hour with Gillian D’Achada on one author’s journey towards publication.
