Non-fiction masterclass with Fred de Vries
Date: 24 July
Where: Live via Zoom
UK time 10h00 to 12h00
We’re delighted to be hosting a masterclass with Fred de Vries author of the recently published Blues for the White Man. Join Fred to learn more about the nitty gritty of the writing process – from research to writing to editing.
The workshop will consist of:
- An exploration of Fred’s writing process and tips on how to successfully write non-fiction
- A writing exercise
- Writing time
- Participants will read out their writing and receive immediate feedback on it – or not if they aren’t keen
Our workshops are conducted in a spirit of fun, by people who find joy in creative endeavour. This will be a safe space for like-minded people to hone their writing skills and to practise their creativity. Comment and feedback will be – according to our motto – honest but kind.
