If you want to learn or perfect a specific aspect of the craft of writing – memoir, say, or narrative voice, characterisation, or plot – the Ink Academy Author Masterclasses are for you. Each class is different but you can expect to come away equipped with practical tools to apply to your own writing – and a real insight into the process of finding an agent, and getting published.

With a maximum of 10 attendees, the Author Masterclasses are intimate and interactive, and offer a genuine opportunity to learn practical elements of the craft of writing from a published author. Each Masterclass will focus on a particular theme but also on the author’s personal experience: what they find most challenging, most helpful and most rewarding about their career. You can expect to take part in engaging discussion in an unpressured environment.

We choose our Authors for their skill in teaching, as well as their experience of writing and getting published, and each Masterclass is tailored to the aspect of the craft of writing that they excel in. So you will learn about narrative voice, for example, from an author who has particular experience in using different points of view.

Author Masterclasses cost £80, and some have additional options (such as one-to-one sessions with the author) that can be purchased separately.
