Creating Compelling Characters, giving you the essential hands-on toolkit to ensure your readers care about what happens to your characters, even the ones they hate.
Pippa Carron is presenting two workshops
From getting started to getting published, a go-to-whoa workshop will begin with techniques to overcome writers block and describe how to set up essential writing support systems
Self Editing for fiction and non-fiction writing. Your writing will benefit from an in-depth understanding of what it is that editors do.
Dr Rae Luckie is also presenting a workshop Writing Life Stories – Memories of Place at the Festival. While we focus on character and events in life story writing, place is sometimes neglected. Place is not just a physical location—places are imbued with memories.
