FABER WRITING COURSES
Posh publishers Faber have Tobias Hill and Jeanette Winterson facilitating their inaugural Faber Academy Creative Writing Course in the deliciously wonderful Shakespeare & Co bookshop in Paris in October (9th to 12th). The course costs €630.
When do you need to tell a story and when do you let it tell itself?
How far can you trust your readers to understand what is left unspoken?
What is gained - and what is lost - by describing characters in the flesh?
Apparently they plan to run these courses in other cities too, including Dublin. See here for more. Sounds great to me but, oh, the price!
