Manon Steffan Ros is a Welsh novelist, playwright, games author, and scriptwriter. She has also been a tutor on the course so read below why she thinks you should join Write to Work.
I've tutored on quite a few courses in the last few years, but never quite like this. For one thing, the cavernous space under Toxteth Library carries footsteps from the public space above, making it feel as if your characters have come alive and are flitting around. And, more importantly, is that this course is aimed at actually making a living from writing- the clue's in the name.
I felt quite well placed to advise on this, as I do many types of writing to earn a crust. I was tutoring about Flash Fiction and Writing for Games, but we also chatted about scripting, getting novels published, and the joys and pitfalls of being a playwright.
There's a great balance on this course. There's creative tutoring, of course, but there's also practical advice on how to create a career in writing.
It was clear to me that a real friendship had developed between the participants of the course, and I certainly made friends there - We still often chat about work and where to take our ideas.
Applications are open for the first course, with dates of the second course soon to be announced.
Dates: Tuesday 7th August - Tuesday 9th October.
Deadline for applications is midnight 30th July and successful applicants will be notified by the 31st July
