‘How to Write a Gripping Commercial Novel’ Course On Thursday Nights

Bestselling writers Roz Watkins and Sophie Draper’s Wednesday night writing course via Zoom ‘How to Write a Gripping Commercial Novel’ Is now full.

There is now a Thursday night, 7 week course available starting on 25th February to 8th April inclusive, 7.00pm to 8.30 pm.

The course is packed with secrets and surprising insights, from two friendly and helpful commercial authors published by Big Five publishers. Roz writes the acclaimed DI Meg Dalton crime detective series, short-listed for the CWA Debut Dagger Award and Sophie has published ‘Cuckoo’ and ‘Magpie’, winning the Bath Novel Award in 2017.

Both Roz and Sophie are experienced workshop leaders and places on the course are strictly limited to ensure a manageable group. The course costs £235, payable in full on booking and places can be booked by emailing Sophie at with the heading “Course Booking“. You won’t need a Zoom account to participate but you will need access to the internet.
