So, to prove that everyone does indeed have a book in them, CGW Publishing are launching a new workshop series in the North East of England.
The course will be for anyone who wants to write any of the following:
+ Fiction, such as short stories or a novel
+ Non-Fiction, such as business books, self-help, local history, biography or hobbies
+ Poetry and prose
At the end of the course, CGW Publishing we will be publishing a collection of all of the suitable work that the participants have produced.
Christopher Greenaway of CGW Publishing says, “Local colleges often run 'creative writing courses', but what we have found that most people want isn't just to be able to write, it's to see their work in print.
When you attend this course, even if you only produce one poem or a very short story that you're proud of, you'll see it in print in the collection for that course. You'll be able to buy copies at trade rates for your friends and family, you'll see it on Amazon and other retailers, and you can even get it into local book shops and libraries.”
Because of the location and schedule of the workshops, the target audience is people who live in the following areas:
Stockton On Tees
Although all authors are welcome from any area.
Currently planned to run for 12 weekly evening sessions, the course will include the following:
Planning what to write
Becoming an author
Structuring your work
Overcoming writer's block
The critical process
Editing and proof reading
Understanding copyright and publishing
Marketing your work
Each week, the workshop leaders will guide the group to review and critique what participants have written and then share an aspect of the overall writing and publishing process, so time during the workshop itself will be spent focusing on skills development and feedback, leaving authors to continue writing in their time in between. The workshops are suited to all types of writing, both fiction and non-fiction.
At the end of the course, all of the participants' chosen contributions will be published as a collection, with a launch event and author readings to publicise the group's work to friends, family, colleagues, clients and the media.
