If you’ve always wanted to write but didn’t know where to start, this course is exactly what you have been looking for. Best selling author Karen Woods who has penned over 22 novels, will be hosting each of these sessions herself over a period of six weeks. Karen knows how hard it can be to get your story out there and has put together this new exciting course to help writers complete the task of writing their first novel. Karen also writes for theatre and has great knowledge of the literary world.
About the author........ Karen was born and raised in the City Of Manchester and is proud to be a Mancunian! Being raised within an inner city area inspired Karen to take an unorthodox and very well received approach within her writing. Karen left school without any formal qualifications and obtained her inspiration from attending an adult literacy course which was offered by her former employers. Karen writes from the heart and always keeps it real to life and she writes about subjects we can all relate too. Having lived a colourful life she uses her own experiences to write her books.
