10-17.7.2023: Mslexia Novel School ONLINE

Mslexia Novel School – ONLINE

10-14 July 2023

Mslexia Novel School is for writers embarking on a new novel or rethinking a work-in-progress. Four leading writer-tutors will each focus on a single aspect of the novel writing craft, creating a varied week of high-quality workshops.

Craft is crucial. But this will be a week that will nurture the whole writer.
That’s why, in addition to our core Novel School material, we’re also including motivation and goal-setting workshops led by experienced writing coach Bec Evans, drop-in surgeries with counsellor Hilary Jenkins for anyone who’s feeling a bit lost, and warm-up workshops led by our course MC Rosie Garland – novelist, poet and performer extraordinaire – who will introduce you to fellow writers on the course.

We know individual attention is all-important, so our novel workshop groups will be limited to 12 people – which means your tutors will have time to get to know you and your writing. The core teaching takes place from 10am-4pm, but groups will come together for the coaching workshops and socials – to form a community of likeminded writers who will become your friends for life.

Imperial College Road

Create your own space poem, with award-winning poets and scientists who explore the universe and worlds beyond our own.
Space is a constant source of awe-inspiring beauty, fundamental questions and revolutionary discoveries. It is also a vast expanse of extremes which can be hard to comprehend. How can anyone conceptualise the differences in size between a sun, a solar system and a galactic super cluster. How would a human experience the pressure and heat of Venus?
