This participative workshop, designed for both experienced and beginner writers, will explore essential skills to conceive and write convincing dystopian fiction. Sessions on believable world-building, dystopian characters, how ‘big ideas’ can meet dynamic plots to keep the reader hooked, the language of dystopia and how other literary genres fruitfully connect with dystopian fiction, will equip you to create your very own Heaven or Hell . . . or perhaps somewhere in between!
The workshop will be run by Tim Murgatroyd (http://www.timmurgatroyd.co.uk/), author of historical and dystopian fiction. Tim’s latest novel Pilgrim Tale will be released in March 2019 and is the first instalment in a dystopian trilogy set in North Yorkshire.
