Psychological thriller writer Amanda Reynolds joins ChipLitFest for the first time to lead a writers' workshop to help you plan and, crucially, finish your debut novel.

With practical tools and inspirational exercises, Amanda will take you through the process of getting down a first draft and honing it ready for publication.

Amanda is, very generously, sponsoring a free place at her workshop. Send a brief pitch via twitter @amandareynoldsj or via email to (subject GETTING STARTED). Deadline: Fri 29 March 2019.
