Kickstart Your Writing with The Reader Berlin

Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 May

10.30 - 16.30

€110 per person




This May, The Reader Berlin is partnering with Sterling Books to host a very special creative writing weekend.

If you're struggling with getting words down onto the page, stuck with a project, or just can't seem to make the time for writing, come along for a weekend bootcamp that promises to get you and your work on track.

Suitable for new writers or/and more experienced writers who want to reinvigorate their writing practice, the course will cover establishing a writing routine, with exercises to kickstart the imagination, alongside tuition on characterisation and dialogue, followed by a class on plot and structure, guidance on editing, and a brief overview of how to begin finding publishers for your work.

Led by Victoria Gosling - novelist, editor, founder of The Reader Berlin, former editor of Berlin Stories for NPR, and creative writing workshop veteran - workshop places are limited, so sign up now to avoid disappointment.
