Learn how to create dazzling stories involving multiple points of view.

The Multi-Narrative Novel

Ensembles, Linked Stories, & Serial Fiction

From the multi million selling George R R Martin (Game Of Thrones, A Song Of Ice & Fire), to the award winning Jennifer Egan (A Visit From the Goon Squad), the multi-narrative technique is behind many of today's most popular and celebrated books. Using unreliability, perspective and dramatic irony to keep the reader in suspense, the multi-narrative novel brings into focus the interconnectedness of people and events, and helps us question and decode the reliability of our own experience.

In this course, we will equip you with the practical techniques to write linked stories, serialised fiction and ensemble stories. Suitable for writers anxious to take their writing to the next level, both beginners and capable professionals will learn practical skills that combine short form writing and long term vision to weave exciting journeys of fiction.
