They can easily form the opening but equally, they might occur mid-way through as a way for the plot to change direction or...

Prompt: Stripped Back Celebrations

This month in the Book Club, we’re thinking about holidays, festivities and celebrations of all descriptions. It’s little wonder: they can make for some of the most evocative scenes in literature. Who could forget the drama and glamour of the Yule Ball or the romance of Bill and Fleur’s wedding? Whi...

Prompt: Colder/Hotter than....

It’s getting chilly in the Book Club this month. Temperature is a very useful tool in the writer’s arsenal as it’s one of the best ways to force your reader to put themselves in the characters shoes. Though none of us (I hope) has ever encountered a dementor, it’s incredibly easy to relate to the fe...

For our last discussion, we’re going very meta! It’s time to discuss interactive experiences based on books. This is anything you can think of that seeks to bring a book to life so that people can physically experience it. It could be a replica of a fictional building that you can spend a night in, ...
