Workshop: Between You and I

Sat 20 Apr, 11:00 am1:00 pm

About the event

This interactive workshop led by author and editor Yvonne Battle-Felton will include writing exercises, questions, and activities that aim to ignite your curiosity about your characters and help to explore the story the character wants/needs to tell.  

Using a character you’re already writing or one you create for the exercise, we will be using pictures, looking at objects and story, and interviewing characters to reveal who the character is, what they want, why they don’t have it, what they’re willing to do to get what they want, and who they want to tell their story to.   


Yvonne Battle-Felton is a writer, academic, podcaster, and event creator living and writing in the UK. Yvonne’s debut, Remembered, was longlisted for the Women’s Prize for Fiction and shortlisted for the Jhalak Prize. She’s written six titles for Penguin Random House’s Ladybird series and is Academic Director for Creative Writing at Cambridge University Institute of Continuing Education and Commissioning Editor (Fiction) for John Murray Press. Her second novel will be published in October 2024.
