This creative course will introduce you to some of the best fantasy books set in London and to the writing techniques these authors have used. London is a marvellous and fantastical place, a place of dreams and nightmares, of slums and palaces, of parks and playgrounds. Its neighbourhoods can take you from one world to the next in a moment, from wealth to poverty, from a little bit of Italy to a little bit of India. Fantasy writers have taken full advantage of this complex landscape. We'll be exploring books set in London and the city itself, with three texts, four walks and four opportunities to taste the food of London.
