    Bogdan Tiganov Creative Writing Teacher (Guildford) Picture The writing world is a bit of a clique, or rather several cliques, promoting and supporting each other, recognising each other, writing blurbs for each other, reviewing each other, in pubs, in readings, in universities... It can become tiresome. There are courses and creative writing teachers...

    Creative Writing Teacher (Chester) Picture Writing dialogue divides into form and content. Form means the mechanics of dialogue writing; i.e. how it is usually laid out on the page; what methods / conventions are held to be most effective. Content means the style of dialogue writing; i.e. how to write dialogue that is both convincing...
