Writing Workshop with James Scudamore: Character and Setting

Writers Centre Norwich
Saturday 5th December 2009 │10:00am – 16:00pm│£50 / £40

“The writing is exemplary: you feel the hand of a natural at work....” Praise for James Scudamore’s Heliopolis – The Guardian, 2009

Keen to avoid the Christmas madness and get some writing done? A creative writing workshop from Booker longlisted author James Scudamore, examines the two key components of fiction - Character and Setting.

James will work with you on exercises that examine the decisions involved when placing a character in a particular place and time; how to evoke that place and time without signposting too much, and whether or not there are settings that are out of bounds for certain writers.

Learn from a novelist who has won the 2007 Somerset Maugham Award, was shortlisted for the Costa First Novel Award with The Amnesia Clinic, and has had continuing success with his second, Heliopolis, recently longlisted for the 2009 Man Booker Prize.
