"'Hill's many notable gifts as a writer include his narrative economy, his honesty and his pin point clarity.''
-- Jim Crace


This online workshop will teach you in a practical way how to write better sentences and make your writing sing, whilst avoiding cliché.

Your sentences are the building blocks – the DNA – of your prose. In this two-hour workshop, Charlie Hill will take you through:

1. The importance of the sentence

2. How to avoid stock phrases

3. How to fit sentences together

4. Applying the techniques of poetry to prose

You will learn how to write better, as well as edit your work so you can get the best of your writing. This workshop contains practical elements and is open to writers of all genres of prose, at all stages of their careers.


Charlie Hill is the author of two critically acclaimed novels, a novella, countless short stories and a memoir, I Don't Want to Go to the Taj Mahal: Stories of a Birmingham Boy [Repeater Books, 2020].
