Description

(Storytelling) ... is a game for two players... it kicks into life when a reader’s imagination collaborates with that of the writer. - Lindsay Clarke

Based on skills and technique this workshop is designed
to be practical, technical and inspirational. Exploring fundamental structures of narrative storytelling and how these can be expressed in creating fiction, writers will take away “a novel writer’s toolbox”, with experience in thinking about, discussing, and working through all the issues that may crop up in writing novels. Suitable for beginning writers and those progressing a novel draft.
