About this event

Want to engage in more creative methods of characterisation? From Faces to Fiction, brought to you by acclaimed historical fiction author Clare Harvey, uses portraits (painting and photography) to catalyse the creation of an original piece of writing, with an emphasis on building character. Passing on the techniques she uses in her own work, Clare will lead you through a series of guided writing prompts to build character, location and emotional context in your work. You will leave the session with an inspired first draft that you can then develop into your own unique short story, poem, a scene from a novel, or work of flash fiction.

£15 for general admission and £12 for NWS members
