Reach for the Heights: An Exploration of what makes for Great Writing

September 24, 2010 | Events, TLC Talent

As part of the Flow Festival at Free Word, the Literary Consultancy offered an exploration of what great writing means and what kinds of challenges writers face when constructing their stories.

Professor Brenda Cooper, editor, writer and mentor, along with Rebecca Swift, the director of TLC, offered a unique class, designed for those who want to set themselves some serious challenges as writers. This three-hour workshop offered the chance to explore the principles behind the writing of figures such as Orhan Pamuk, Doris Lessing, Jeanette Winterson and Margaret Atwood and gave the participants the chance to apply those principles to their own writing. Tea and cakes baked by the TLC Administrative team were provided to aid inspiration.
