The RSL/Booker Masterclasses 2014

We are delighted to announce that, in collaboration with the Booker Prize Foundation, the Royal Society of Literature is holding its fourth series of Masterclasses during 2014.

The Masterclasses are open to Members of the RSL, and to members of the public, to established writers and to beginners. Classes are for a maximum of fourteen people and six places in each class will be reserved for Fellows and members of the RSL. Classes last three hours and cost £30 for RSL Members, £60 for non-members.

In response to cuts in funding to public libraries, the RSL has chosen to hold two of the four classes in libraries.

Tutors for 2014 will be: Bernardine Evaristo who will run a class as part of the TLC Digital Conference in June, Penelope Lively will run a masterclass on memoir in June;  in September, Jim Crace will lead a hands-on, practical class called The Writing is in the Rewriting, looking at the craft of revising and filleting first version texts and in November William Fiennes will lead a class.
