Claire McGowan is a very successful writer of fiction. She's the author of three acclaimed crime novels, including The Dead Ground, currently in production as a BBC drama. She also writes contemporary women's fiction (which she describes as 'romance, with jokes') under the pen name of Eva Woods ('A fresh new voice in romantic fiction' – Marie Claire). Claire's success lies in her strong, compelling characters and her skilful use of the narrator's voice which keeps the reader turning the pages, absorbed in her storytelling.
In this affordable, one-day Masterclass which looks at how character and narrator's voice can make or break your book, Claire McGowan will share examples from her own work and the work of others, before setting you practical tasks of your own, and providing feedback on your ideas.
A regular tutor for Spread the Word, Claire's sessions are packed with practical tips, insights and ideas for how you can develop your work and take it up a notch. A fantastic opportunity to spend the day learning from this talented and friendly Guardian Masterclass and City University tutor.
