I absolutely loved Novella Fever. Kiare has a great teaching strategy, always staying positive. I loved the way the first half of each class was teaching and the second half was feedback (with no talking back!) It was brilliant!' Cat, Novella Fever Student

Do you have a great idea for a book but perhaps find the prospect of writing a full length novel intimidating? Our evening novella codurse is perfect for you - taught by writer Kiare Ladner (BBC Radio 4 Short Story, forthcoming novel from Picador). Details below.

Novella Fever, with Kiare Ladner, at the Writing Room, Wood Green

If the short story is like a photograph and the novel is like a film, the novella is like a fever.

kiare ladner black and whiteIn six weeks, we will aim to start (or finish) drafting a novella. What you work on may be only slightly longer than a short story or slightly shorter than a novel. You may have an idea to explore, or a short story that’s growing, or something resembling a novel in progress. On the course, we will look at what gives this particular form its power. We will think about the value of the instinctive in our writing. We will discuss the general shape a story of this length this may take. In intensive weekly sessions we will workshop both writing and story ideas. All levels welcome.
