NAW 10-week course to start 23 May 2012

Monday, 16 April 2012

The National Academy of Writing has designed a 10-week course based around the detailed editorial feedback offered by the acclaimed NAW Masterclass. The visiting NAW Patrons are Orange short-listed authors Jane Harris and Naomi Alderman.

NAW writers on the unique NAW Masterclass:

‘Lots of helpful stuff about language and character etc, with a level of insight and precision that is bloody breathtaking.’

'Found these so useful. I feel that I have learnt as much from observing the feedback on other people's work as I have from the feedback on my own. Very sharp analysis.'

'It's so instructive both as patient/victim/spotlit writer and as observer. I think this has probably been the session in which my writing skills have developed the most.'

The NAW Masterclass is a public edit in which writers receives detailed editorial feedback on a submission of up to 3000 words (and a written report to take away). The observing writers learn from the points made in the edit, as in a Conservatoire Masterclass for musicians.

The fee for the course, which will be held at the Freeword centre in London on Wednesday evenings between 6 and 8.30p.m., is £890.
