The Programme

The Future Novelist programme is for students who aspire to write or who are passionate about English language literature. Guided by an author and an English teacher, they study British, classical and contemporary works as well as works from all over the world. They discover what to do in terms of creativity, while being supervised by a teacher to develop their literary skills.

The Future Novelist programme is a 27-hour/week English language stay in Dawlish. The classes are made up of a maximum of 8 students who are divided into groups of the same level.

Inspiration: Students read texts by English-speaking authors from all periods, analyze stories, characters and the hidden meaning of words.

Creation: Students discover how to write different genres and study techniques such as: creating suspense, describing an atmosphere, writing a realistic dialogue to make their writing more attractive.

In the author's footsteps/Cultural excursion: students have a mid-week excursion where they go to a place related to an author (e. g. visit Torqay, Agatha Christie's birthplace). Before the excursion, they do research work on the author and the place, do a task during the excursion and, later in the week, then write a story in the author's way.

Writing workshop: students work on their own writing, guided individually, to get the most out of their own plot and characters.

Why do this programme?

The Future Novelist is the perfect programme for students who want to increase their literary culture as well as develop their own English writing. The passion to understand the mechanisms of novel/literature writing is important to fully enjoy this language stay.

For a 4-week stay, it is possible to complete two weeks of the The Future Novelist programme and two weeks of the The Future Diplomat program.
