This one-day masterclass is for writers who need assistance and encouragement to get their manuscript to the completion stage.

The day will cover issues such as: keeping the book alive, finding patterns and resonances, reading like a reader and the true ending.

This workshop is ideal for those who have been working on a book for some time or feel they are ‘stuck’ and not progressing with their manuscript.

The workshop includes:
• One full day’s intensive tuition from 10am - 4pm
• Lunch and regular tea and coffee breaks
• A 10% discount on full priced books purchased at any Readings shop – the official bookseller for the Academy (not valid for online purchases, other offers, lay-bys or special orders)
• A complimentary copy of a recent A&U publication

Carrie Tiffany is in the country for a limited time. Book soon to avoid disappointment.
