Write Your First Novel And Get It Published
NEW DATES COMING FOR 2023 – WATCH THIS SPACE!!!
Want to write a novel? Here’s some GREAT news: if you are already a screenwriter, your ability to pivot your skillset into writing a novel will set you way ahead of the competition. Since ‘screenwriting is structure’ this can be a HUGE advantage when it comes to writing novels. We tend to be plotters with greater awareness of important issues such as genre, pace and structure. So why not go for it, with an established novelist like Lucy V Hay to shed light on how to do it!
