May’s Masterclass: A Novel Approach
Looking to start reading a novel with your shared reading group, but not sure how to go about it? Perhaps you're already reading novels and are looking to refine your practice? Are you interested in the special quality that novels have when read aloud together?
This special Saturday Masterclass, led by The Reader Organisation's Literary Learning Manager and The Reader magazine regular Casi Dylan, will cover all aspects of working with novels, from selection through to conclusion, and will make the case for working through longer works of fiction as a group.
"The final test for a novel will be our affection for it, as it is the test of our friends, and of anything else which we cannot define." - E.M.Forster
Masterclasses are especially for Shared Reading Practitioners who have attended Read to Lead as part of The Reader Organisation's Ongoing Learning provision, designed to improve shared reading practice and deepen understanding as a reader.
The last few places on this special weekend Masterclass in Exeter are available - places are free if you are within your first year of Ongoing Learning, and £55 otherwise. This cost includes lunch.
For more information on this Masterclass and to book your place, please contact Literary Learning Coordinator Roisin Hyland on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0151 207 7207, with the details of the Read to Lead course you attended.
