Writing Creative Non-Fiction - A Masterclass with Writer in Residence Cal Flyn.

Author and journalist Cal Flyn draws on her working life to share some of the best skills of fiction and non-fiction writing. Learn techniques of literary fiction – the lyrical descriptions, narrative arcs, and crafted dialogues that every novel needs – before turning to the fast-paced writing and eye for detail that characterises reportage. This day masterclass will teach you how to blend the two for maximum impact.

Cal Flyn is a writer, reporter and editor. For many years she worked in both print and online media, before a move to freelance allowed her to move more formally into the literary world. Her work has been published in Granta, The Sunday Times Magazine, Aeon, and the New Statesman. Her debut book, Thicker than Water, was published by Harper Collins in 2016. Whatever the format, Cal’s writing betrays an interest in indigeneity and colonialism, a talent for memoir and an eye for nature. Cal grew up in the Highlands before moving to London via Oxford, and now lives in Edinburgh.
