Honno Writing Workshops in April & May 2011

A recent missive from Honno in Aberystwyth highlights workshops they have coming up.

Their third workshop, The Shape of a Book: Structure and storytelling in writing novels and autobiography with  editor, Janet Thomas:

The Studio Theatre, Aberystwyth Arts Centre 
Sunday 17th April 2011, 1400 – 1630

This will look at how you put a novel or autobiography together, how to create scenes, how to pace a book and how to create a powerful beginning to draw the reader in.

Cost: £6 (£4 concession)

The next in Honno's new series of writing workshops will be on the 29th May 2011, when Honno editor, Caroline Oakley, will talk about the difference between wanting to be a writer and wanting to write.   And yes, there is an enormous difference – sign up and see!  Caroline is inviting participants to send in a piece of work prior to the workshop so that she is able to give informed and individual attention to all involved.

Finally, some feedback from Honno on their feedback:

In February there was Lindsay Ashford's writing workshop for budding Raymond Chandlers and last month 'Writing for Performance: Creating text for Actors and Directors' with Stephanie Tillotson.  The feedback for Stephanie's workshop was astonishing, including one participant who gave the event "1000000000000000000 out of 10".

That's pretty impressive.  When you take a break from your writing: get booking!
