Held in partnership with the Women’s Prize for Fiction, join two award-winning, bestselling authors and Bloomsbury’s publishing director for a unique masterclass in writing and publishing.
Passionate about writing a novel? Eager to become a published writer? This event, brought to you in partnership with the Women’s Prize Trust (the charity behind the Women’s Prize for Fiction who champion women’s voices on a global stage) will provide insights into the creative process of novel-writing from award-winning authors and a leading editor.
International bestselling author and founder of the Women’s Prize for Fiction Kate Mosse, will be in conversation with bestselling writer Dorothy Koomson and Bloomsbury publishing director Alexis Kirschbaum. Together they will discuss writing techniques to help you shape your narrative voice – how to differentiate between character and author voice, create a unique point of view and use different devices to move the plot forward. They will also share tips on how to find an agent, advocate for yourself as a writer and, ultimately, how to get published.
This masterclass will ultimately give you the confidence to pick up the pen or strengthen your work – and to then take it forward.
Presented in partnership with the Women’s Prize Trust.
This event is held in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Women’s Prize for Fiction and the publication of The Women’s Prize for Fiction Journal.
