Writing well is both a tricky and a solitary business. That is why it's good to connect with other writers and address questions like these:
How can we create a great story? How can we produce work that we like and others want to read?
Together, we will be looking at the building blocks of storytelling - from initiating incidents, to the hero's journey, to the journey's end.
The workshop will include analysis of texts that demonstrate the techniques in question; writing exercises; group work; and a list of useful resources.
Participants will leave with new skills, inspiration, and the confidence to move on with their own chosen writing project. The workshop is suitable for experienced writers and for those who are just starting out. All are welcome!
