Writer’s Week: To Plan or Not to Plan? Get Your Writing Project Off the Ground with Amer Anwar (Webinar)

Join Amer Anwar for a webinar on Sunday 17th October, 6-8pm as part of New Writing South’s Writers’ Week.

What is the best way to get your writing project off the ground and avoid writer’s block, or writing your story into a hole that’s tricky to climb out of? In this informal, informative lecture, Amer will share his experience of writing and publishing his novels. He’ll talk through planning methods different authors use and why some prefer not to plan at all. He’ll discuss routine, research and the various software packages available, as well as how to find out what works for you. Come prepared with your planning queries as he’ll finish by taking questions from the audience.

Suitable for writers at all stages
