In this episode, we speak to novelist and creative writing lecturer Ian Nettleton to discuss how to structure a novel. Ian explains many of the devices and structural elements that can keep readers engaged and how to ensure your story becomes a page-turner. He also talks about some handy software that can help you structure your stories.
Ian has been shortlisted for a number of prestigious awards including those for his novels The Last Migration and Out of Nowhere. He is also an associate lecturer in creative writing courses at the Open University and works with the National Centre For Writing on a number of our own fantastic creative writing courses — including ten-week fiction writing courses and a fantastic series of short, online self-paced courses on writing science fiction.
