The course will be taught in an all-day workshop environment, and instructors will be using a variety of texts in different genres. There will also be opportunities to network with publishers, agents, and others.
Also: Attendees can choose to work in one language or to split their time between two languages by attending morning workshops in one language and afternoon workshops in the other.
There are no formal entry requirements to take part in the course outside of fluency in English.
