My 15 week course for aspiring YA writers is back! Apply by 24th December for a 13th January start. 1 scholarship place is available, fully funded by WriteMentor.

The first course has been so much fun, with such a diverse mix of writers. They’ve already improved so much and the course isn’t even over yet. I can’t wait to see who applies for the second round.

This is a high pressure course that will require a lot of time. You will be given more editing suggestions than you will know what to do with. This is a course for those who are truly prepared to tear apart every inch of their manuscript to make it better.

More info and apply here.

Two lovely features for The Starlight Watchmaker this week – a review in The Book Curator in Australia, and a nice interview in Gardner’s catalogue! It’s so nice seeing the suport for this book. I think I should probably start thinking about what comes next for Hugo and Dorian!
