What to expect
Joy will ensure you know how to put the basics in place for good creative writing practice, teach you how to make writing part of your daily routine, and show you how to find your voice and enjoy your writing. By the end of the day you will have plotted an outline, thought about the setting and characters, and explored structure through collaborative work and a range of useful exercises.
