About this event
Join this month long interactive online course with best selling saga author and Chair of the Romantic Novelists’ Association Jean Fullerton.
With publishers searching high and low for new saga authors the market for this long-standing genre has never been stronger. However, Jean is often asked is ‘what is a saga?’ and ‘what is the secret of writing one?’
As a multi-published best-selling saga author Jean Fullerton will take participants through a series of short talks, writing exercises and discussion forums to help you weave a multilayered saga that will be both pacey and engrossing.
She will discuss the elements needed to satisfy voracious saga reader that both pays homage to the sagas’ long standing traditions but also hooks in the modern reader.
Jean will look at the ways of developing a saga series that take your readers to a different time and place. She will highlight pitfalls that await saga authors and help you construct a novel that will capture readers from the very first page, keep them hooked until the very last word and then dashing to Amazon to pre-order your next book.
The course includes live interactive tutorials via Zoom as well as written course materials and discussion forums on the Moodle platform.
This course has a limited number of tickets.
