As part of the Being A Writer Festival, The Literary Consultancy presents four creative writing Masterclasses with some of our most popular and best loved writers.

In this Masterclass, bestselling novelist Vaseem Khan dissects the notion of Plot and Pace. Including theory, examples and practical exercises, this Masterclass asks (and answers) the question: what makes readers keep turning the pages? And how as writers can we build a believable story that clips along, pulling the readers with it.
