Award winning historical, crime and fantasy novelist Chris (CC) Humphreys will reveal the secret of successful writing… that it’s all about process. He believes that too many writers give up their dreams because they don’t immediately write like their heroes. By breaking the journey into stages, Chris will help you go the page and want to stay there.
Chris uses the metaphor of ‘the mountain’: writing the novel as a series of climbs each with their unique challenges and excitements. He will guide students through each stage using a blend of anecdote, example and fun writing exercises. By the end of the workshop, each writer will have a clear idea of how to proceed at their particular level, providing them with a route map to climb ‘the mountain’ entirely by themselves.
The workshop is suitable for writers in every stage of development. From those who have dreamed but have no idea how to begin, to those more experienced who find themselves stuck. Chris does not believe in writer’s block – for beyond every so called obstacle lies the breakthrough you are seeking. So bring your quills, your questions and your enthusiasm and let’s climb the mountain together.
