LSE Literary Festival - How to write a novel- an introduction for beginners with Justine Mann

Download: Audio, Slides

Speaker(s): Justine Mann

Recorded on 13 February 2010 in Alumni Theatre, New Academic Building.

Does the task of writing a novel both excite and daunt you? Using the political novel as an example, this workshop will examine how to progress from initial ideas to a successful draft. Participants should emerge with an understanding of the task that lies ahead and a greater sense of what is required in terms of structure, characterisation and plot.
