How to Write a Novel
A continuation of Gary Dexter’s How to Write a Novel course. Readers familiar with the basics are also welcome. We will be concentrating on larger extracts of written work by students (up to 3,000 words) which the class will read and critique.
About the tutor: I have been writing novels, non-fiction and journalism for twenty years. Among my books are Why Not Catch-21? (Frances Lincoln, 2007; paperback 2008), an exploration of the derivation of book titles; The Oxford Despoiler (Old St, 2009; paperback 2009), a Victorian detective mystery; Poisoned Pens (Frances Lincoln, 2009; paperback 2010), an anthology of splenetic writers; 102 Ways to Write a Novel (Old St, 2009), non-fiction under the name Alex Quick; All the Materials for a Midnight Feast (Old St, July 2011), a novel about the peace movement of the 1980s; Natural Desire in Healthy Women (Old St, 2014), a novel about the contraceptive rights movement of the 1920s; Poetryhaters (Old St 2017), non-fiction, forthcoming.
