Have you always wanted to write a novel but don’t quite know where to start? Or you’ve launched in a frenzy of creative energy then ground to a halt? Don’t let another year go by. I’m going to be running three courses this year, in collaboration with Newcastle City Library, Newcastle upon Tyne.The courses run for four weeks on Thursday evenings 5-7pm where you will join a small group of other hopeful novelists in fun, interactive and informative sessions.
Get That Novel Started 2, 9, 16, 23 March 2017 £65
Get That Novel Finished 1, 8, 15, 22 June 2017 £65
Get That Novel Published 5, 12, 19 October 2017 and 2 November 2017
You can pick and choose which of the courses you do – one or all of them! – but you will get the most out of the series if you start at the beginning.

Hello Ms. Fiona. I’ve investigated the Get That Novel Started and wanted to know where to find the first two courses because I am definitely not at the stage to find a publisher. I mainly want to focus on improving my writing, reading, and pretty much learning as much as I can while maybe coming up with an idea for my first book (if I decide to go that route).
Hello Jin. The first two courses were run earlier this year. Hopefully they will run again next year, but this still has to be discussed with the library. If it does run again it is likely to start in March. Keep an eye on the Newcastle Library website and sign up to their newsletter. https://www.newcastle.gov.uk/leisure-libraries-and-tourism/libraries
