First Chapters workshop with CLAIRE FAYERS.

Claire Fayers (2017)

First impressions are vital, whether you’re entering SCBWI’s Undiscovered Voices competition this year – or polishing up a manuscript for submission. Give your story the best possible start and come along to a writing workshop with former Undiscovered Voices winner, Claire Fayers.

We’ll look at: Characters, setting and the all-important voice, and finish up with some small group critique work, to make your first pages sparkle.

You'll need to bring: The first chapters of your manuscript, pens, paper and some snacks.

​VENUE: The Urdd Centre, Cardiff Bay.
TIME: 10am – 1pm
PRICE: FREE. Although this event is free, we'd kindly ask you to BOOK YOUR PLACE using the link below, so we can book the right sized room to give everyone enough space!

Claire’s writing career took off when she was selected as an Undiscovered Voices finalist in 2014, leading to a 3 book deal with Macmillan. Her winning entry: 'The Voyage of the Onion', became Voyage to Magical North. It was Waterstones’ Children’s Book of the Month when it came out in 2016, and it has been shortlisted for the Children’s Book Award. Claire's WEBSITE is:
