After eleven years directing our flagship Writing a Novel course, helping over a hundred students gain publication deals, Richard Skinner has developed our new series of ten masterclasses. Covering the essential elements of fiction in his fullest, most impactful workshops, this series is perfect if you’re looking to sharpen your skills, improve particular elements of your writing, or aren’t able to commit to one of our longer courses.

In this masterclass, we'll cover it all. From a ‘zero’ draft, through rewriting and drafting, then editing, titling and pitching a piece of writing – all in one 2.5-hour session.
