He is the creator of our flagship Writing a Novel course and has gone on to see a record number of our alumni find major publishing deals. He recently launched a series of ten masterclasses, distilling his experience of teaching on Writing a Novel for over a decade into advanced, intensive evening sessions on specific elements of the writing process.
