The seminar will run over two weeks with the option of attending one or both of the weeks.The first week is entitled the 'Foundations of Writing' which will focus on how to turn a real life event or fiction into an inspiring story that will grab hold of the reader's imagination. The second week is entitled 'Thematic Writing'. Thematic writing is used to write books that inspire and persuade. This week will teach you how to communicate your ideas logically, with clarity and persuasion. During this week you will also begin to learn how to self-edit your work.
