Over eleven two-hour monthly sessions, Ian Ayris will take you through every aspect of creative writing – from structure to dialogue, description, point of view and everything in between – all the way through to writing a synopsis and the process of submission.
Ian Ayris is a Fellow of the Royal Literary Fund, the author of four novels and almost forty short stories. Ian has been running the Creative Writing course for Pen to Print since its inception in 2015.
