A Weekend Writing Course… (6 – 8 September 2019

I am organising a weekend writing course on the 6th September in Cirencester and wondered if any of your members would be interested in coming.
The course fee is all inclusive of accommodation and meals, workshops and discussions, running Friday to Sunday.
The course suits all levels, and is informal  and fun. Members can attend as Residential members or Day Visitors.

TOPICS TO BE COVERED IN THE PROGRAMME:

 Ideas – where to find them?

  • Magazine analysis – who are a publication’s readers, and what are they looking for?
  • Article structure – what’s the right structure for your article idea?
  • Beginning and Endings – how to grab your reader’s attention, and round off your piece satisfactorily.
  • Factfiles, Boxouts and Photos – all those extras that editors love.
  • Rights, Secondary Rights, and Money – all the important stuff.
  • Pitching – Sell your article before you write it.
Simon Whaley is a popular Author, Writer, Photographer and Course Leader. Published world wide, he is one of Writing Magazine correspondents and member of NAWG.
This course introduces you to a wide range of opportunities to publish your work. It includes the writing market, publishing, and exercises and how to approach editors.
Notes are handed out at all workshops.
I attach a poster and booking form.
Members can pay by instalments if they book early.
With best wishes
