Lucy McCarraher Returns

Tonight saw Lucy McCarraher return to Norwich Writers' Circle.

The author and tutor, who first visited NWC in October 2009, returned to give us a workshop on how to structure a novel.

The entertaining workshop, which sparked a variety of interesting exchanges, covered several points, most notable of which were:
  • what is the inspiration for our novel?
  • what do the characters experience?
  • where the story is set? and,
  • is there conflict featured in the main plot?
Tonight's meeting was also the launch of our Competition Three - to write an outline of a novel in no more than 1,000 words. Lucy will be returning to NWC once more, this time to adjudicate the competition, which closes on the 14th December.

We next on 7th December, when Taggart creator Glenn Chandler will be adjudicating our short Radio Script competition.

We hope to see you next time.
